Freshly Made Sketch #31

A rare post on a Sunday, but I just finished this card which is based on this week's Freshly Made Sketch Challenge.  Not much stamping on this one (seems like most of my cards can be described that way), but I really liked how the embossed flower looked compared to the stamped flower.  I also used some of my Baker's Twine that I tend to forget that I have.  I took someone's advice on SplitcoastStampers and organized my ribbon by color rather than type.  It really seems to be the best approach because you might see something different that you forgot you Wisteria Wonder Baker's Twine.
