This is a card sketch challenge that Beate had going on her blog a little while ago. Such a different way of presenting a card. Here is the link to Beate's page where she shows the sketch and gives the measurements.
I am very unhappy with my card for the simple reason that the vase is asymmetrical grrrrrr, so the image doesnt look balanced. To try to fix this, I have the punched out flower in the corner on a foam dot as is one of the other flowers and the flower in the centre of the greeting. It is still not a good look!!

The left panel is done using my newest Cuttlebug embossing folder - thank you Bethel!!!

Card: SU Elegant Eggplant, Always Artichoke, Ruby Red, More Mustard and Very Vanilla
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Always Artichoke, Ruby Red and More Mustard
Stamp sets: Flower Filled and Riveting.

Jean, if you wouldn't have mentioned that your vase is a little off, noone would have noticed it.
Your card is gorgeous! Thanks so much for trying out the sketch.
Hugs and smiles
