Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #19

I had been seeing these great sketches on Rochelle and Sarah-Jane's blogs; the Sweet Sunday Sketch. So this week I decided to play along. Of course this caused some consternation when I saw the sketch because I am not good at placing little doo-dads below my card, and pairing those with a focal image is also not my forte.

So I did my best. I love these fabric brads from Amy Butler and paired them with a retired sentiment from Stampin Up. I love how the blue on the fabric buttons is mirrored in the cardstock on top.

That's my contribution, hope you like it!
Supplies:
Carstock: Stampin Up
Stamp: Stampin Up
Ink: Memento
Ribbon: American Crafts
Twine: Papertrey Ink

Wonderful card! Love the colors, the repetition of the small dots and those yummy blue buttons.

Oh Katie, this is great! I like the blue too! The little fibers tied around the ribbon is so cute. This could be a great card for a guy or a girl! I am happy you decided to give Karen's sketch a try, they are always fun.
