Simply Pretty

It's Thursday, and that means its time for another challenge from Creative Sketches Challenge Blog!  And today, they have a wonderfully cute 'sketch only' challenge!  Easy Peasy, huh?  
Here is their sketch:

And here is my version of this sketch:
The card base is Pink Pirouette cardstock.  The two pattern papers are from the Tea Time Scrappin Kit.  I used the Creative Elements stamp set for the added images (border trim, flower, 'create', flourish, and butterfly).  The flower is stamped in Old Olive classic ink.  The flourish is stamped in Versa Mark and white embossing powder was then poured on the center piece.  The 'create' was stamped in chocolate chip classic ink, onto a tag that was in the scrappin' kit.  The butterfly was stamped in Versa Mark, on a scrap piece of Pool Party cardstock and heat embossed.
When I sat down to create this card, I wanted something that used product I already had on hand, followed the sketch, and was pleasing to the eye.  This card has a lot going on, but it doesn't hurt your eyes.  I really wanted to add some ribbon, to soften the crisp edges, but didn't see any that looked 'good'.  
Thank you for looking!  And come back soon!
