Played in Splitcoaststampers’ Sketch Challenge today.  The Sketch can be found here.

And this is the card I made for it.

However, I did change it a bit.

Because of the embossed background design, the image circle looked much better being centered as opposed to being offset to the left as the sketch shows.  I placed the bow to weight the left side “heavier” in an attempt to disguise it.  hehe

Cuttlebug’s new “Embossing PLUS” folders are so awesome!  They are embossing folders and die cuts all in one!  This is the “Blooming Bouquet” Embossing PLUS folder used on vellum.  LOVE it!!

Finally, congrats to Diane (cookiestamper) who is the winner of my blog candy!
