Sketch Challenge 172

I made this for sketch challenge 172. It's a simple layout, but it was neat to see what everyone did with it. Be sure to go over there and flip through the gallery! For the colors, I used one of my favorite combos from this site. You should try it, they go so well together! I had the Garden Silhouettes set still sitting on the desk so I decided to use it again. This is the first time I've used this image. Like the sympathy card from the other day, I flipped my stamp over and colored on the rubber with my SU markers. After stamping it on Whisper White, I noticed the leaves didn't show up too well, so I just went over them with the fine tip of the Celery marker. I added a little sparkle to the flowers with Stardust Stickles. To finish it off, I just punched a hole using the Slot Punch and ran my ribbon through the image. Hope y'all have a wonderful evening, the weekend is almost here!!!
