Sketch Challenge

This card was made for today's sketch challenge. I found this a rather tough sketch to work with, I just couldn't seem to find a balance for this card. Not to mention these pearls would not cooperate today they would not stop leaning to the side, no matter how much glue or tacking down I did! Thank for for all your wonderful comments yesterday about my missing Mojo!

Maybe with the new season and kids back in school my mojo will return in full force.......LOL! Not that I have ever ran at full force....LOL! Art has always been very hard for me as a kid I rarely ever crafted, my projects just never seemed to come out like the looked in my head KWIM. So there you have it I am not a natural.......the secrets out.........LOL! No really I am just hoping that I will eventually be able to make a card without all the metal blocks soon!

Supplies: Carte Postal, Chocolate chip, close to cocoa, card stock, Bracade Dp, Chocolate chip craft ink, ribbon, pearls, primas, and dimesionals.

Wowza -- you put in good, you get out good -- I think you are being hard on yourself! Though I do know that following your OWN instinct is key. Those pesky pearls! I love, love, love the use of primas and the centers in them... the pearl used in the center of the medallion is BRILLIANT, and you must have one heck of a ribbon stash because of all the cards on the block you always pull out the most stunning ribbon. (And you never tell what it is ;^)* I want some!!!) I just love this card, and you can tell those pearls to behave! Maybe use some thread to tack them down to the ribbon with some tiny stitches???

Hi Kelly. I love the pearls in the middle of the flowers. Where did you get them? are they from the fabric store? are they brads or beads?
