Freshly Made Sketches #79

Hello!  Wow, can you believe March is almost over already?  Rita Wright has a new sketch for us today.  It's a really great sketch and since I needed to make a birthday card for my mother-in-law, I was looking for a great one.  And Rita, bless her heart, really came through!  I wanted to use some pretty patterned papers and this sketch is just perfect for that.  Here is what I came up with:

That patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye - so, so pretty.  I love multiple scallops on cards so I added just a couple rows of them here.  I almost added a button to my twine but I decided I liked just the bow by itself.  Sometimes it is hard to hold back and not keep adding things!

Here is Rita's great sketch:
