Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #35

All right! Card number two in two consecutive days! I have really been loving playing along with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch and this last week's was no exception! What a fantastic layout. Yet another one that I am sure to use again and again.

I took some color inspiration from a card Dawn McVey made a few days ago. I can't wait to get my purple buttons in the mail! They should be here Monday or Tuesday.

I guess this is a pretty simple card over all. I combined two dps from PTI, used my EK Success wavy edge punch, added some ribbon, paper piercing, and a little sentiment and called it a day. I kind of feel like it might be missing something... maybe some jewels somewhere, but I can't figure it out... Oh well. I stamped the flower three times, cut three layers, and popped them up on dimensionals.

I'm off to run some errands this morning, meeting my aunt around lunch, and going to a concert at the park this evening. The California Symphony is going to play a bunch of Broadway music! Should be lots of fun... I'm planning a great picnic dinner for my roomie and myself. Don't have a picnic basket, but I'll find some way to improvise.

Thanks for stopping by today!
