Kristina Werner color challenge and Sketch challenge

I have been mulling over doing a card for a design team challenge for the late night stampers group. It seems like i would sit down to create a card and then see something that I had thought of doing come up, already done by someone else in the group!
I was thinking of doing a few different things, and then lo and behold, something siminlar to what I had in my head popped up in my email! I thought it would be cute with butterflies and Sale a Bration paper.. Well, Kristina Werner to the rescue! This color combination got me out of my mindset (having already seen something i was going to try, and done so much better! I had a blast with this one.
I started with a 1/2" strip of Designer series paper and added some sticky strip to it. Then I used my bead duo's to add some pink beads, like the cute girly dresses in the challenge photo. Next, I tied a ribbon around the half inch strip and stuck that to some pink pirouette designer series paper. I took that whole piece and mounted it to a 2" x 5 1/4" piece of cardstock.
I punched 3 squares and put them on the diagonal instead of on the "square" and added some of the beautifully knitted flowers from SU!. I'm so happy they are offering this type of item because I don't have a sewing/knitting bone in my body. My medium is most certainly paper! Well, after adding those I thought to myself that the center of those flowers could really use an embellishment and I started to look at my pretties kit. Then a simple solution hit me. I added a mini glue dot to the center of each flower and added some beads on top of that!
I really had fun with this challenge. Thanks for the inspiration!
