SU Oldie - CPS Sketch Challenge

This is a simple card I made using the sketch challenge over at CPS. If you love the sketch challenges like I do this is a great site to check out. I did a few more of their challenges which I will post soon as well. Check out this week's sketch here.

Here is my creation for the challenge.... I used an old Stampin Up set called Natural Beauty. I haven't used many of my SU sets recently and lord knows I have many so I pulled this one out today. I can't remember but I think this set I received as a freebie when I attended the Providence Demo Regional a few years ago. Unfortunately, I am no longer a demo or hobby demo :-( Maybe one day I will join again! I used rose romance for the base color. The great patterned paper is from the DCWV Mat Stack "Once Upon a Time". This pack has great fairy tale papers which have glitter already on them!! (Sorry if the photo does not pick that up well) I stamped the flower on Vanilla cardstock and mounted it on Mellow Moss. It was colored in with markers (not Copics yet). I added some bling in the middle of a flower, it's part of the blings I picked up at Michael's dollar spot.
This is definitely a super simple card but in the end I really liked it. Nothing too fancy but the paper and flower are fancy enough I thought. Sometimes simple is better.
