DCBD #109

Hello everyone!!
Just so you know that I didn't make a mistake and name this card sketch challenge incorrectly, I skipped last weeks challenge. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Above and to the left is the card challenge we were given this week by Heidi, our head Diva. I really thought this one was pretty fun and challenging. It had quite a few different color choices in it.
To be honest with you. I can't say I am completely satisfied with how my card turned out this time. I love how the top note die cut turned out, but when I added the other things it just didn't satisfy me like I thought it would.
Well with that in mind above and to the right is what I came up with for this weeks challenge. Once again take this challenge upon yourself and try it. Let me know by email or on my comments that you did it. If you have a blog and post it let me know so I can check it out.
Here is the recipe for this card.
Stamp set: True Friend
Cardstock: chocolate chip, close to cocoa, kiwi kiss, pink pirouette, regal rose, and very vanilla
Ink pads: pink pirouette
Markers: regal rose, old olive, and chocolate chip
Tools: big shot, top not die cut, corner rounder punch, curly label punch, boho blossom punch, and 1/16th hole punch
Accessories: 1/4" grosgrain ribbon chocolate chip and pretty in pink, and earth elements brad old olive
