Die Cuttin' Divas #197 January Sketch Challenge

Hi there Crafty Friends!
Today brings us a new challenge in the new year at the Die Cuttin' Divas. This is a sketch challenge. I have come to realize that a sketch challenge can be the easiest and the hardest challenge depending on the day. haha. Some days they give you all the inspiration you need, but other days you have to try really hard to come up with something different. I felt that my cards had started to look the same, so I decided to change it up.  Using some Sizzix dies I had gotten on clearance at Michael's I made some paper flowers. They aren't the best as I couldn't find my quilling tool, so I had to roll them by hand. I also used some nested oval dies and colored wooden dots with a sharpie.  I felt I really got to be creative in some processes on this card, like that vellum strip, it was really hard to line up once it was cut.

I made this card for my best friend's 30th birthday. I hope she loves it. Let me know what you guys think. Don't forget to join us at the Die Cuttin' Divas for this super fun sketch challenge, and don't forget the die cut! Thanks for reading everyone :)
