Create-A-Card sketch 9-6-11

Time for another Create-A-Card SketchFirst thing you'll notice is that I didn't make this into a tall skinny card but made it be the standard 5x4ish size.
Second thing you'll notice is the lack of horizontal ricrac on the middle paper. I thought the dotted lines that looked like lined paper was reminiscent of kindergarten and the ricrac or ribbon would hide them.

I use three sheets of designer paper from the same pack (a Hobby Lobby exclusive - or at least I didn't see it anywhere else and I got it several years ago and never saw it again) and mounted it on brown cardstock. The ribbon was a Martha Stewart package of pre-made bows on close out at Walmart that I had to glue on because the adhesive had already "given up". And lastly, the image that I colored with my Bic markers is from the CDAC Progressive Challenge. I participated last month and got new images to play with this week. Hopefully I can do it again and continue to the end of the challenges.
