STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge #28

Hello!  Today we have a new Sketch for you to play with at STAMPlorations.

Here is my take:

I created a background using Vignette: Mod Shapes in shades of purple then white washed it with Picket Fence Distress stain.
I fussed with the banner stitching and added some Brushed Pewter Distress Paint and then layered some Black marker over the top of that to give some contrast.
Stamped a flower image on a white circle die layered with black as well.
Fussy Cut an embossed sentiment from BOLD SENTIMENTS and adhered it all together..
In the end I like how it turned out:)
 I DO find Sketches to be most challenging!

Hope you stop be STAMPlorations to see all the other cards from the last challenge winners!
