Feeling Sketchy Card Sketch #97!!

Hey Everyone!! Happy T.G.I.F to you all!! I hope your day is off to a good start! I'm back with another great sketch challenge for the Feeling Sketchy blog.
This is Card Sketch #97:

With that said, let's get on to the card I created based on this sketch.
I went a little outside of my comfort zone for this card but what is crafting without taking risks.
I think it turned out nice in the end, but I'll let you decide.
Here's the pic for you to peruse:

The card base is a standard A2 size; 4 1/4 x 5 1/2", made from a Recollections Cream cardstock.
I took a Creamy Caramel ink pad from Stampin Up and inked around the edges.
I cut a 2 1/2" circle on my Cricut using a blue floral paper, inked the edges and used my ATG to adhere it down.
I used my Fiskars Threading Water punch and two 1/2" strips of cardstock, to create these layered scallops across the circle.
To finish off my card base, I wrapped some Linen Thread from Stampin Up and tied a double bow on the front.

I wanted to add a tag to the front of my card.
 I wasn't sure if I wanted to stamp an image first, then watercolor or try my hand at drawing an image to watercolor.
I went with the second option.
I cut a 3 x 5" tag out of some Canson 140 lb. watercolor paper.
I watercolored the entire tag first with a Weathered Wood Distress Marker and dried it with my heat tool.
I drew some flowers and blades of grass in pencil, making sure to keep the pencil outline light.
Once I had the image the way I wanted, I went back in with my Distress Markers to color it in.
I used Victorian Velvet for the flowers and Shabby Shutters for the grass.
I set the tag aside to dry.

Once dry, I then inked the edges with Creamy Caramel, added a few pearls to the flower centers and some linen thread to the top.
I used foam tape to attach my tag to the card front.
Lastly, I added a few blue and pink sequins for some added bling.

For the inside of the card, I stamped a "Thinking of You" sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink from Stampin Up and added a few paper strips to the bottom.

                                                            And ta-da!! card complete!!

                                                I hope you enjoyed this project for today!
                                     Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your Friday and Peace!! :)
