Pomegranate, Gray & Sky challenge


Here's a card for my friend Tobi...she's having a birthday next week! This is also for yesterday's scs color challenge (cc137) and today's sketch challenge (sc147). These colors really challenged me...but I was determined not to quit until I had completed a card today! I got to use my heat & stick powder with dazzling diamonds, which gave the flowers a little bling = )!! Also, for the sketch challenge, they encouraged using plenty of hardware, so as you can see, I took that to heart & used 13 silver brads on this card...that's a lot for me! So, do you think Tobi will like her card?? I think she will = )
