Weekend Sketch with Flowers

Today's Limited Supplies Challenge is to use an embellishment that you often have regretting buying! Believe me, I have a ton of neglected embellishments that looked fabulous in the store and I can't figure out how to add to my cards. Or they are so completely out of my style that I never even think to reach for them. I just had to have these flower brads! Why? Sure, they are fantastic but they are so not me!! :-)
This card uses Beate's weekend sketch. She is so creative and sweet! I always look forward to her weekend sketches.
I am off to the west side of the state for a weekend of family and stamping!! I can't wait to meet some of my SCS friends on Saturday night! I will be sure to take some pictures!! :-) Since I will be out of town, I most likely won't be posting till Sunday evening. Have a great weekend!
Recipe:
Stamps: kind thoughts
Paper: ruby red, chelsea's place dp (making memories)
Ink: ruby red
Accessories: prismacolor pencils, celery ribbon, stampin dimensionals, flower brads (deja views)
