I started this sketch late last night, actually as soon as it hit the computer around midnight. I have been learning from others that you can go outside the box when producing a card sketch. I hope this works. I started with CC as the base of the card. I used my square punch placing it over the flower on the dp. I then used the CB Textile folder on all 4 of them. I used the CB Flower borders for the vanilla pieces, spacing with the same panel on each. I thought about it several times for the look I wanted to achieve and came up with this idea using the square medallion with my decorative corner punch. I saw the new tutorial on Becca Feekers blog here http://www.amazingpapergrace.com/rec...ches-tutorial/. I chose to make a square, whereas she made a rectangle. My medallion square plus the 2 pieces are all
3 3/4inches. I did 2 steps a little different than hers and it worked just fine. Once the lines were all marked on the backside of the dp, I then punched my corners, then I punched between the lines instead of on the lines. I stamped the sentiment from Stampabilities called True Friends with black ink onto MME dp. I also made an extra backing piece to make it more steady. It's like a sandwich. There are mini glue dots in between the CC and the DP to make it stand out a little. I added a piece of satin ribbon and tied with a bow. I'm still learning the ribbon tying. The medallion is placed on with pop dots. I added a silk flower with a fabric brad (which I clipped the brad prongs off to look like a button). I used my corner punch and Friskars Lace corner punch for the corners. I added mini rhinestones to complete the look. I liked how this all came together and hope you do to. I had a really fun time doing this challenge. Thanks Roxy! Have a great day!
I just completed this card with chocolate chip, so I decided to add it to the Limited Supplies Challenge. I hope that was ok.

Wow, you did a fabulous job on this challenge! I love all the details and how well thought out your design is. Kudos for the great write-up job you did also! The color scheme you chose with the DP gives is such a nice, warm, homey feel. I just really, really love the entire effect! TFS!
