Buds About to Bloom

Hi there, Thanks for checking out mu blog. This week I am playing along in a large number of challenges and today is my day for posting them all to my blog. This card features three challenges, Retro Sketches, Fab Friday, and Late Night Stampers. I found it fun to combine so many challenges, and all of these challenges are a first for me. I do like the sketch and color combo, even the stamp set reminds me of spring buds about to bloom. I Dyed the ribbon in Sahara Sand, I've been dying ribbon a lot lately you may have noticed, I may do a tutorial, but if you search it on YouTube you are sure to find one. I have never used so may pearls on a card before either; I felt so unlike me, usually I am so cheap about embellishments, but I think the effect is nice. I hope you enjoy my card.

Here is a close-up on some of the card's elements.

Here are the Sketch and Colour Combo I used for this Card.
