Freshly Made Sketches #55

Hi Everyone,

I've made this card for Freshly Made Sketches #55 here

I've tinted my Vellum with brayer and Baja Breeze ink before embossing with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder to create a monochromatic card.  The base card is Not Quite Navy with Whisper White Card and I've also used the Delicate Designs Border Embossing Folder down the LHS on the white and the Perfect Pennants Die cut circle under my punched and Stamped Ornament from the Delightful Decorations set.  It's also been sprayed with a little Shimmer mist.  There is a little Dsp from the Twitterpated pack under my strip with the Pleated Satin Baja Ribbon.

Here is the sketch my card was based on

Thanks for taking a look.  Hope you'll tell me what you think.
