Sketch time

Ready for another sketch? This sketch is based off of a card I made almost a month ago. Although it's not ultra simple, I really like the linear design and the proportions. I made three versions, this yellow one, a pink one, and a blue one. I love using clear sheets as my card base and I especially love adding a cool background with white stazon. I did a bit of rock'n'rolling for the flowers. I really love mixing lemon tart with just a touch of summer sunrise around the edges.
Some measurements:
Small Dark Chocolate: 3x4.25
White Image & Sentiment Panel: 2-7/8x2-1/8
Scalloped Piece: 2-7/8x3/4 (there may be some overlapping of those two parts)
Optional interior or back piece: 3.75x5.
Supplies:
Stamps: Women of Life, Beautiful Blooms, Green Thumb, Polka Dot Basics
Ink: Summer Sunrise, Lemon Tart, Dark Chocolate, White Stazon
Paper: Dark Chocolate, Summer Sunrise, Lemon Tart, White
Accessories, etc.: Acetate, scallop nestabilities, pop dots, ribbon
As always, if you play along, feel free to leave a comment with a link!

I just had to make a Thank You card with this sketch because I wanted to use some ribbon that came off of a birthday present I got today. (My birthday isn't until tomorrow.) It's a great sketch; thank you!!

Fun card but the link isn't working at the top of the post so I can't pass it along to anyone - very sad not to be able to share such a lovely card.

Thanks for sharing - Jean

Love this sketch. I probably didn't keep it as simple as I should but happy with the results any way :)

I agree with Mary---lovely sketch, but I embellished it too much to make it truly CAS:
