A Sketch Challenge gone CrAzY!

I am so in love with the group I swap with online! I didn't think I would have time for it, and it's been a struggle, but I am having so much fun! This card is for a swap, the theme is a sketch. Basically, it's a strip behind the main panel, and one in front with a circle shape on the front panel. Well, the card got so awful busy that I cut the main panel and used just a band of ribbon. It helped, but I am still thinking this card is just too much. Is it just me?

I just got Bouquet Bunch in, and love it! It will be available in May in the New Summer Mini catalog. It's a wonderful set, I do believe I will reach for it often. I stuck with some current In Colors for this one, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo (glad those two are hanging around to become part of SU's regular line up!), and Crushed Curry. I added some Razzleberry Lemonade DSP (the homemade button uses that as well). The flower and pot are watercolored, and popped up, the pot on dots, the flowers on Dimensionals. I framed this with Large Ovals, the centers punched with the Small Oval, and DSP behind that. I was hoping for a flower effect, it came out looking like some sort of science prop...neuron or something...school's been a while...LOL!

All being said, I don't hate it, but it's certainly not my favorite either. I hope the recipient likes it, that's all that matters!

That looks like a lot of work! Very original and those are some of my favorite In Colors!

I think it's really cute, I sometimes find sketches really difficult as I just want to move stuff. I am sure whoever gets it will love it.
