Some Challenges

Good Afternoon,

Today is just flying by! I had intended to post this card earlier as I made it this morning but I'm only now getting to it. Hope you're having a good and productive day!

I created this card using the sketch at Sketch and Stash and then added some rose accents to fit the ABC Challenge of R is for roses.

I like the way this turned out but I really don't love it. I think it's too plain, it needs something else, but I'm not sure what. And I didn't have time this morning to figure it out. Maybe later!

The image is a Sugar Nellie and has been colored with Copic markers. The papers are SU! Parisian Breeze and some Kraft, Baja, and Chocolate card stock to match. The accents are wide grosgrain ribbon, brads, felt flowers, and paper roses. I'm loving these roses, but am running out, what will I do?! I think I need to start hording them!

So there's the card, pretty simple, I think that's why I'm not crazy about it. Hope to have some crafting time tomorrow and to be able to join in some more challenges. Have a great night! Happy Stamping! :)
