Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #75

I made this card for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. That is one of my favorite challenge blogs and I try to do the challenge every week. So many new layouts to try. I stayed pretty true to the sketch, except that it showed small circular embellishments along the right side of the image - like brads or flowers. My original idea was to use pearls, but I wanted to get it done tonight and was running out of time so I subbed some ribbon. I may end up using this layout (or a slightly simpler version) for a swap I'm in. If I do that, then I may add the pearls and post it again. I also think it would look awesome with one of those lacey scallop borders instead of the plain scallop. I made a no-buy pledge with a friend this month, but come March 1st - look out. I have to have one of those border punches!

Supplies
Stamp: Hydrangea (Anna Griffin); Le London Script (Stampabilities)
Ink: Sepia (Ranger Archival Ink - I can't find my VersaFine - waaahhh!!)
Paper: Cream, brown and pink cardstock; DP - Wild Asparagus (My Mind's Eye)
Embellishments: Ribbon, Tapestry embossing folder (Cuttlebug)
Techniques: Prismacolor pencils blended with Gamsol; masking
