Looks Like Another Sketch Challenge

I managed to tackle another challenge over the weekend, this card being for Beate's WSC #50. This one was quite straight forward but I still felt the need to consult my 8 year old, Tiarna, about a few things. She certainly seems to have an eye for design and creativity... she confirmed my assessment of what to do and what not to do with this card wink! The large Looks Like Spring flower was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock using Close to Cocoa ink, with the second flower being stamped a second time to make it slightly darker (it's more noticeable in real life). Also on Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped one of the images from Circle of Friendship using Handsome Hunter ink. I punched this out with a 1" circle punch after punching out the center using a 1/2" circle punch. I cut the flowers out, layered them and stuck the inner circle on as the flower center. This was mounted onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock that had been stamped and sponged with Old Olive ink using a dimensional. The River Rock background has been stamped with both diamond images from Looks Like Spring, wrapped with Very Vanilla taffeta and Old Olive/River Rock ribbon from the Theater Ribbon Originals pack, and mounted to the Close To Cocoa card front. The outer section of the circle sentiment sits in place with a extra piece of Theater ribbon tied in the middle. The large flower piece has been layered over top with dimensionals (bet you didn't see that one coming!).
