Papertake and Sketch and Stash Combo

I decided to try out a combination of two challenges and found the sketch at Sketch and Stash and the recipe challenge at Papertake Weekly. I needed a card for an upcoming wedding and felt my mojo going so I stayed up late (again) and went with the flow. Until I tried to make a bow. That certainly wasn't easy as 1-2-3. I think I spent a half hour perfecting a bow and decided to live with less-than-perfect. I also think it looks more like a bow-tie, evoking the image of a groom's tie and thereby adding some masculinity to the card. I finally got to use my new corner punch that I found on clearance at Staples and I also had fun getting creative with my three-step daisy stamp set. I added a little dimension to the flower.
