Blogger's Challenge--Sketch with 411 colors

It has been a few weeks since I have been able to play along with the Blogger's Challenge, and wouldn't you know it, I don't like my card!  I don't have time now to re-do it so maybe later.  But I am sharing anyway.  I think the idea was good but the card is not, lol.

Any way this week we had a sketch challenge so I combined it with the 411 Color Challenge.  Here is my sample..

Here is the sketch and the color challenge...

You're being hard on yourself. The card turned out great. It's so pretty. I love the flowers in the bigger circle and how you added the saying with the large initioal in the little circle. and I wish I could add such beautiful bows.

Okay not seeing what you don't like because this is pretty. Love the flowers in the large circle and the bow element looks great.

This is a stunner to me -- I love that you used two circles and I would never have thought to use Thoughts and Prayers as you've used it here. Very clever!
