Beautiful . . .

I had no idea this card would take me soooo long to create. I started with one color direction and totally ended up in another way. My starting point was the Viva la Verve sketch. I truly planned to follow it but I absolutely couldn't get it to work. I think my finished card is a little more CAS.

I always have problems with the 3 little dots that are often on sketches. I'm not much of a button girl though I own plenty that I like to look at! . . . but I knew I needed something for balance. I decided to use a small sentiment. 

Can you see the many different ways my brain was going? I wasn't happy with my sentiment choices as the scale was all wrong. The Beautiful Plain Jane was a perfect fit. I recently used this sentiment here for a different look. I originally thought I was going to use Berry Sorbet as the color base and Aqua Mist ink but that morphed!

I'm glad I kept working because I think the finished card works! Have a great day. ~Rhonda
