I just found out yesterday what the 'colors' are for my middle nephew's upcoming wedding, so I had this color combo already in mind when I saw the sketch challenge. I also have had this chocolate satin ribbon and was determined to use it as I thought it brought some elegance to the color combo........................so.......I must apologize for taking some 'leeway' with the uppermost image panel......I made it an oval and moved it a bit to the right so that both the ribbon and the image would be highlighted..............I promise if I make another SC card in the morning that I will use a rectangular main image And will 'center it' as the sketch had it........I also had to use some bling on the corners and a bling brad flower center to continue the 'elegant wedding' theme.......I also used one of my 'new toys'.....(got some new Cuttlebug folders the other day)......
thanks for looking....great sketch, Roxie..........will play again in the morn.......
