Because I care Hydrangea Card Wednesday Sketch Challenge

This is the card I made for today's Sketch Challenge over at SplitCoastStampers.
I did like the layout but to make it work with the flower image here I had to mirror it. I will often flip the sketch but I have never mirrored it. I think it turned out great doing that.
Had I left it the way it was the words would be covering the stem and the side where the words are would be pretty big and open.
The paper I used here is from a Perfect Plum Decorative pack.
I also used a scrap piece of Perfect Plum card stock and used the lattice embossing folder. That piece just didn't look right plain and I didn't want to use another piece of decorative paper. I did try it and it was like wearing stripes and plaids that just didn't mesh well!
Originally I had the oval scallop cut out of Perfect Plum but I had to change it to black because it got lost in the background strips.
The "thank you" came from the retired "Holiday Blitz" set. It's an adorable set that I will be hanging on to for a while longer. I love the little images in it and I especially LOVE the "thank you" words in it. It's difficult to find smaller words that fit in the circles and are big enough to read easily.
There was really not a whole lot to making this card.
My oval and the scalloped oval were made using Nestabilities dies.
It was a fun sketch and if you have the time I highly recommend you play with it, just for the fun of it at least! And check on SplitCoastStampers to see what others have done with the sketch. I love seeing other people's take on this same layout.
Thank you SO much for visiting today,
