using up leftovers

Happy Friday to all you out there! Sad Friday for me...Shawners is leaving tonight for Indonesia and won't be back for 10 days!! We are going to spend the day together though so at least there is that! I made this card for the 2 sketches 4 you challenge. I was trying to use up some leftover card stuff from my eScape night. I am not quite sure I like this card yet which is why I didn't post it yesterday...but when I woke up and saw it again this morning it wasn't as bad as I remembered it, so I figured it might keep growing on me. I colored in my flowers with markers and added stickles to all the middles. I might try this sketch again, cuz I love the sketch!! Maybe what threw me was using up my leftovers!
I'm off to hang out with the fam for the day!
