Inkspirations sketch challenge #12.

I love sketch challenges, so I had to participate in the latest inkspirations challenge from Makeesha.

As always, it's a great sketch but it was SO difficult for me to make this card! It wasn't the background, or the three elements down the bottom, or the stripe across, or even the two elements at the top was the darn oval! Try as I might I couldn't make anything that looked good, even after 4-5 versions of the oval. So 3 hours and much cardstock/ink/patience later, I gave in and went with two stamps from the "Yummy" set. I think it still doesn't "fit" the card but it'll have to do, for I'm fighting with it no more. The Sei paper is soooooooooo pretty and it's shimmer-y, which you might just be able to see in the photo below. The ribbon has a bit of shimmer in it, too.

Anyway, I'm off to veg in front of the TV and unwind. Thanks for looking!
