Sketch - Challenge Card

Trying to get myself motivated to make a few cards - so I decided to try the sketch on a new sketch site - 2 Sketches 4 U. I also decided to do the pink challenge on Caardvarks. Sometimes you make a card and you don't really like it - that was this card - but I took it to work today so I could take a picture of it with the excellent lighting I have in my office - I took it out of my bag and laid it down - this was the way it was laid down with the fold on the top - I really like this card - now picture the card with the fold on the left - that was the card I did not like. I thought the card had too much blank space so I started adding the Basic Grey rub ons that have been hanging out in my rub on folder.

Patterned Paper: Making Memories (plaid), green and black dots - Sweetwater
Trim - Wrights
Bling - Target dollar bin
Die cuts - Sizzix
Rub ons - flourishes - Basic Grey; sentiment Kaiser Scrapbooking
Bazzill scalloped paper - card base
Prima flowers

Hope you enjoy my creation.

Everyone have a wonderful evening and hope you get to be creative.
