Saturday Sketch Challenge 193

Happy Saturday everyone.  What a dreary morning.  It's raining here in good ole South Louisiana!  Makes for a nasty Mardi Gras weekend.  Since its gloomy this morning I thought I'ld make a bright card!
Here is the sketch: 
And here is my take on it:

Card Recipe: 
Paper:  Stash
Stamp is DMD from Walmart (one of the first sets of stamps I ever bought just to try)
Ink: SU Pumpkin Pie (watercolored)
Ribbon: Walmart
Bling: Imaginisce - iRock
Yellow Stickles for the center of the flower
I pretty much stuck to the suggested sizes on the challenge:
  • Base: 5-1/4 x 10-1/2", scored at 5-1/4"
  • Layer 1: 5-1/8 x 5-1/8"
  • Layer 2: 5 x 5"
  • Layer 3: 3-3/8 x 3-3/8" (I think I did this layer a bit bigger b/c I wanted more yellow)
  • Layer 4: 3-1/4 x 3-1/4
Thanks for taking a look!
Have a great weekend and if you are in the NO area be safe while out at the parades!
