A La Card Monkey #108

I almost missed the deadline for one of my favorite challenge blogs, A La Card Monkey.  This week's challenge is a simple sketch plus a "girly" theme.  Here's the sketch:

When I saw the theme, I immediately thought pink flowers.  Enter "Apothecary Art" with a beautiful rose line art image, some shimmery organdy ribbon and a few pearls!

I know the original sketch showed a bow, and I had a beautiful light pink organdy one tied, but it just overpowered the card.  So I opted for a hint of white organdy ribbon behind the focal panel and called it good!

Be sure to head over to A La Card Monkey and check out the other samples.  And if you haven't entered a card, you still have time!

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!
