Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #2

I made this card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.  I had seen a card somewhere using the Notably Ornate set combined with the retired Love Letter dsp and I liked the combination. I'm sorry I can't remember where now.  I fussy cut around the stamped image then layered it onto Riding Hood Red and Black.  Unfortunately I don't own the Language of Friendship stamp set so I substituted Punch Potpourri (retired) for the flowers.  The greeting is from Occasional Quotes (retired).  Leaves, lace and pearls completed my card.

I have been missing a little while....haven't been well but am hoping to be on the mend after seeing the doctor on Monday.
Enjoy the rest of the day everyone.
