Freshly Made Sketches #63

Happy Wednesday!  Freshly Made Sketches has a new sketch for you today!  Rita Wright designed this sketch and what a great sketch it is!  I came up with a card right away and set it aside just waiting for it to be published.  But then something about it kept picking away at me; I wasn't completely satisfied with it.  It was too, too plain.  I finally took it apart, added some patterned paper, used an embossing folder, added some ribbon and a jewel here and there and .. voila!

Hmm .. did I go overboard?  Maybe, but it's so much better than the original.  Here is Rita's sketch:
