Soft & Sweet Card ~ Sketches! #27

Made this card using Sketches! {by Tamara} Card Sketch #27. The possibilities are endless with this new sketch. You can see my card over at Tamara's to. Combined this Sketches! Sketch with my DT work for Savvy N Sassy. Isn't that ribbon GORGEOUS!
Wow it took me like forever to get a half way decent photo of this card. It just wouldn't take good. So I took a photo of it out in the sun. I'm still not pleased with this photo of my card. The colors are bright and here that doesn't show. When I had taken more then a half dozen photo's of this card this one was the best.
