CC's Designs Sketch Challenge

After debating a bit, I finally broke down and got this cute Take A Seat set by CC's Designs. This set comes with a lot of different people and cute accessories like couches, walls, stools, etc. that they can sit on. I'm glad I got the set and have no regrets whatsoever. Wanted to try the sketch challenge at the Wednesday Challenge Blog, which was much harder than I thought! I guess I generally don't follow sketches, so I had some difficulty in making sure all my pieces were laid out in the right order. Hope I got it right... Also wanted to kill two birds with one stone and make a card for a special friend. She gave me a RAK recently and I wanted to thank her for it, so I designed this card so that I could also use it as a Thank You. Its in the mail now, so she should be getting it soon. Normally I would wait till she got it, but had to post already since there's the challenge deadline. I hope she likes it! It was my first time playing with crochet lace. I got this from Tamiko's at the Islander Girl Social. I've never used it before, so I wasn't sure what to do with it. Also added on corners from my new set I got from Sizzix. It must be an old set because it was on clearance. Like the paper? I got this plus a whole lot more from the Fall Clearance Sale at Island Scrapbooking this weekend. Someone was selling a lot of SU DP packs for a whopping $6, so I totally scored on this. I like getting coordinating papers, makes my job so much easier. (I make like its my work yah?) Anyway, here's the close up of Emma (I think that's her name). I like that she's holding a rose and the rock wall she's on also has roses on it. Added my own roses from Wild Orchid Crafts too. Since I was planning on giving this card away, I stamped the inside. This is the first time I've used my Verve stamp set and I love it! There are several thank you phrases in this set that fit perfectly in the circle! Plus they are clear, so you get perfect placement everytime! Here's a close up of the sentiment so you can see the detail on the circle I added in some small flatback pearls as accents. Hope you liked my card! My DH thinks the sketch made my card look more professional. I guess I agree with that. It sure took me a long time to make this one card. I have another challenge card to share with you tomorrow- that one is even more complicated than this one!! I'll get the hang of it one day. Supplies:
