Mojo Monday Sketch #73

Participating in sketch challenges has been very beneficial to me. I try different card layouts, I actually make cards, I'm using more embellishments, and I get to see some awesome cards made by other stampers. I guess if there is a downside it is that I'm also seeing some really, really great stamps that I don't have!
This card is for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge At first I wanted to try making a valentine's day card, but decided I didn't really need another one. So I made something I could give one of my friends. . . for a birthday, a thank you, for any reason. I can wait and add an inside verse later.
Two great things about today's card: I used some retired SU stuff - the ribbon and hodgepodge hardware. I kinda decided that I should try and use what I have before spending more! That's not always easy.
Paper: Brocade Blue, So Saffron, Mellow Moss, Very Vanilla
Ink: Mellow Moss
Markers (to color the flowers) mellow moss, brocade blue, so saffron
Accessories: small oval punch, ribbon (from Theatre pack), hodgepodge hardware, button, linen thread
