OCC May 09 sketch challenge

Happy Saturday Everyone! I made this for the sketch challenge over at OCC this week. It's a great sketch, but I struggled to find balance with this card once I started it. I used all 3 shades of the Azalea prismatic papers and the Sweet Pea stamp set by Flourishes. I embossed the cardstock base with white ep and the Stitched background stamp. The two smaller panels were embossed with clear ep using the tiny flourishes included with the Sweet Pea stamp set. I punched the borders with an EK scalloped dotted punch, and added some sheer SU ribbon. The sentiment is from So Many Sayings by SU and I used the word window punch for that. The 3mm pearls are from Hero Arts. I used Nestie Petite Ovals for the focal panel which was colored with Tombows and a damp paintbrush.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fun Saturday!
