Sketches Challenge #53

This card is for Tamara's Sketch challenge for today. I started off with a pretty basic card, just the Cuttlebug background, the patterned papers and the flower. Then I added the metal flourishes (round paper clips bent outward and colored with my gold Copic marker) and it still looked plain. So next came the concave corner punch and the 2 rhinestones, better but it still looked too plain. So I added the 3 rhinestones on the bottom striped panel, improving but now the top panel looked naked, lol. So I used my Nestabilities to punch out the Thank You and added another rhinestone. Well, for heavens sake, now the bottom panel looked too plain again so I added the ribbon and I found balance, hurrah! I am happy with the final result. Be sure to check out Tamara's blog for more examples.
