The Perfect Sentiment: Friendship/ Sketch Challenge!

It's time for another challenge from The Perfect Sentiment!
This week, your challenge is to create a card with a sentiment of friendship on the front.
The "twist": Use the following sketch to inspire the design of the card. The sketch is of a circle shaped card. However, if you do not have the ability to create a circle card, then you may create a square card and incorporate circles as the "layers".

Here is the card I was inspired to create:

I absolutely love this romantic paper! And I adore these gorgeous flowers, so I figured the combination of the two could make a really pretty card. The sketch, with it's row of 3 flowers brought them to mind, and I really like how it all came together.

For a delicate layer of background texture, I embossed the Swiss dots on the white layer using a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I also added a pretty satin bow which gives a nice softness to it all.
Hmmm.... my only dilemma now: which of my dear friends shall I send this to? ;-)

So now it's your turn! Play along with us and link your challenge card to The Perfect Sentiment! You have until Tuesday at 10:00PM EST. Our lucky winner will be awarded one free digital image of choice from our wonderful sponsors at Pattie's Creations.
