A Challenge card and Blog Candy Alert

I'm making a quick post to share a card I made for a new site and challenge I discovered this week- the Six Chicks Sketch Challenge (#12) at Limelight Papercrafts. I don't have any product from them yet but that will change soon considering the great products they carry and the awesome shipping price!

Here is the sketch

Here's my take. Not only are you to follow the sketch but you are to use textured elements. Now.. I usually make lots of textured cards and scrapbook pages. That's the one comment my hubby always makes is something about the texture and he always wants to feel the card or page... but for some reason this stumped me on this one. I think it was trying to find something in my stash that would go together and look good with the sketch. Anyway, here is what I came up with. The ribbon has some slight texture to it and I added stickles to the image.

Paper: HOTP Florals and Patterns
Ribbon: Offray
Stamps: Inkadinkado, Studio G
Ink: Versamagic chalk ink purple hydrangea
Accents: brads, brand unknown

I also added a piece of patterned paper inside the card and will later mat a message on cardstock to add to the inside.

Also, check out Heart's Delight Cards for a chance to win some awesome blog candy.
