Archer Take Aim

My card today features another beautiful image from the Simply B Stamps Steampunk Zodiac range, this one is Sagittarius.

One of the colours a horoscope site said was lucky for Sagittarians was lilac so I’ve gone with that as the theme of my card.  I followed a sketch at the Sketchy Challenges to make up my card, I wasn’t sure of the element in the corner was part of the sketch or not but thought I’d use it anyway.  I love metal embellies and the plaque I found in my stash had a pattern under the word that reminded me of an arrow head so I added it to my card.  It’s a bit hard to tell in the picture but the plaque is double 3D zotted off the page to make it really pop while the oval element is single 3D zotted.

I changed up the sketch a bit by using trims instead of other pieces of paper so they are a bit narrower than those elements on the sketch but I am trying to use up my stash of trims!  The whole card has a soft feminine feel that I really like especially when contrasted to the picture of an archer.
