Sunny Challenges First Challenge

There is a new challenge blog in town!!!  Sunny Challenges and Creations.  For their first challenge we had to use the sketch provided AND use the stamp set Inspired by Nature!!!  Eeeekkk.  I think the sketch and the stamp set lend themselves to a DL card but as I can't display DL cards in the Tourist Centre very easily, I made my card the normal A5 size.
Card stock is basic black, crumb cake, very vanilla with Newsprint dsp for a couple of layers.
I've replaced the centre panel in the sketch with wide striped grosgrain ribbon.  The image was stamped off once to try and create a shadow effect and I've stamped the smaller images of the flower stamp. Pearls and an antique brad gathered bow finished off.
I'm undecided whether I'm happy with this card or not but it's made now so we'll see how it goes. lol
The retired list is out so there is much excitement amongst Aust/NZ demos today.
I'll have a look at it later.  Have to go out this morning.
Enjoy your day everyone.
