Weekend Sketch Challenge #18

This is the second weekend in a row that I have tried Beate's weekend sketch challenge. I am finding that it can be so much easier using someone's layout and all I have to come up with is the paper, stamps and accessories. Sometimes it makes it half the work.....when you're inspired that is.

A few things about this card that are a little hard to see on the picture are:
1. I distressed most of the edges of the card stock using the distressing tool from the Cutter Kit. Much easier than using you nail!!
2. I outlined the edges of the flower using a two-way glue pen and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on top.
3.There are four diamond gemstones in the punched out ticket corners.
4. To attach the ribbon, I used the Horizontal Slot Punch under the scalloped circle area to hide the hole and then thread the ribbon through the hole and around the edge of the card. So the ribbon does show on the inside of the card.
5. To create the scalloped circle, I used the Coluzzle circle to cut a circle and then used the Corner Rounder punch around the edge. Don't forget to take off the base. It just snaps off.
Happy stamping!
