OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch #117

Here's the sketch for this week's Stars & Stamps challenge #117.

I made my card using all scraps of Blushing Bride dsp from SU! and black. I used an awesome new punch I won recently called Brick Pattern by EK Success. and used blushing bride cardstock over black. The sentiment is by SU! and was done with SB circles and scalloped circles. I added a piece of narrow black ribbon to separate the panels of dsp and I keep thinking this needs something more, but I'm not sure what to add. I'd love to hear your suggestions!
I wrapped up my package for OWH yesterday and it's ready to mail tomorrow morning, so this card will have to wait for the next box.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're enjoying a wonderful Sunday!

I definitely do not think it needs anything else...It is perfect the way it is! However you determined to add something the unly place I would put anything is under the sentiment. Love that punch. I definitely need that (wink)! TFS!!!

Carol, this card is beautiful and I love that punch. My wish list is growing. I think your card is just perfect the way it is, but if you are looking for something to add, the only thing I can think of is maybe a couple of little gems on either the top or bottom or maybe both. I did not get a chance to see the race last night but I did hear the results.

The first words I thought of when I saw your card were tender and touching. The small amount of black makes this a very elegant card. Great job! I love it!

gorgeous punch - gorgeous card - maybe some black pearls in the corners or a black pearl swirl somewhere - but really not needed

I love that punch!! I might have to get that one. I agree with Donna, maybe some little gems in the top left and bottom right corners might make you happier with it.
