TESC 129 - 2nd Submission

Hi all! I have another submission for the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #129. I wasn't too happy with the first one I submitted. I think I have some of my mojo back with me tonight! Haha! Here's the sketch:

I started with the patterned papers for inspiration. I just love the combination of sophisticated and whimsical in one surface. The yellow patterned paper is one of my favorite patterned papers from Cosmo Cricket. I was a little stuck as to what to put in the middle. I don't really have big stamps that make an entire scene. Instead, I picked up my circular border stamp from Inkadinkado. It came with the butterfly and it was perfect for the center of the card. It was a bit big though, I hope you can still see the Martha Stewart edge punch back there.  I also added the ribbon because it looked like something was missing back there. I love the rich olive color of it. I thought it added a lot to the card. :) 

Cardstock - kraft, white (PTI), cream (Paper Company)
Patterned Papers - Everafter (Cosmo Cricket), Lush (My Mind's Eye)
Stamps - medallion, butterfly (Inkadinkado), banner (TPC Studio). sentiment (PTI)
Others - edge punch (Martha Stewart), ribbon (Wendy), pearls (Recollections)
