Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #32

Good Evening All!
It`s a late post from me today, I just coudn`t seem to get going.Not a lot of mojo in the loft this morning but I was determined to make a card as Sunday is the only full day I have to craft. It`s going to be Alan`s sister Christines birthday in a couple of weeks so I thought I`d get that done nice and early but didn`t have a clue what to do. I couldn`t decide on a layout, colour scheme or even which stamps to use, so I went challenge hopping.
And found Chupa`s Sketchbook Saturday Challenge over on Random Acts of Creativity.
Here is the sketch she provided for us,
And here is my take on it.
Both DP`s are Papermania but from 2 different sets, the orange one is Capsule Collection Sunshine pack and I`m not sure about the mocha one. Both are matted onto brown card.
The scalloped circle (nestie) is also cut out of brown card. The stamp is Flourishes Orchid set, coloured with Promarkers and cut out ( with scissors lol).
The sentiment is computer generated onto pale cream card and cut out with a nestie Labels 4 die.
I`ve added a pale golden yellow ribbon and I managed to find a matching brad in my stash. A piece of string, tied in a bow to finish.
I`m also going to enter this one into Jules Crafty Snippets Challenge wk 40 as all the DP and most of the card are from my snippet boxes

.Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
