365 Cards - #197 - Super Sketchy Sunday

Super Sketchy Sunday over at 365 Cards today and what a sketch it is. Take a look below and see what I mean. I immediately thought of a football when I saw the image (sorry Pam) so I chose to make my oval a scallop oval so it didn't look like a football lol.

Then to add some texture I Cuttlebugged it with the Swiss Dots folder and the band over the top is Cuttlebugged with the Victorian folder. The May Arts vintage flowers are a gift from Sherry in that RAK I received a while ago now and this is the first time I have been able to bring myself to use some. I have been coveting again. . .*hangs head* I cannot seem t help myself from saving them for something special lol. I mean every card should be special or at least that is what I tell myself when I continue to covet all my lovelies lololol but tonight it was the first time it worked hehe.

I hope you enjoy my card tonight and now I am about to do another post with a challenge for the Colour Throwdown blog. This will be my first one for that challenge blog.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

OMG That's so funny. I thought it looked like a football, too! But once I got past that - it's a great sketch!! Love your take on it, too. The flowers are gorgeous, and I love the way you've added your sentiment. :D
