Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #49

Just getting this done in the nick of time...  This was such an unusual sketch, that I just had to play along with Sketchbook Saturday, but when I started out, I had in mind a bunch of stitched vines, maybe some 3D flowers - and my card turned out to be the complete opposite!  CAS is definitely not my usual style, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out.  I stamped the flowers up the left side in bamboo ink, then masked off the top and bottom of the card, leaving about a 2 1/2" strip.  I lightly sponged bamboo ink all over the exposed area, and then overstamped Universal Backgrounds in desert sand.  A little knotted organdy ribbon, and I was done:
White daisy cardstock; Bamboo & Desert Sand Inks; Ivory Organdy ribbon; Stamp sets are Card Word Puzzle & Universal Backgrounds - all CTMH; Sentiment is Blessings, Verve.
