A Sketch Challenge at Our Creative Corner

Hello and Happy Saturday to you! This week at Our Creative Corner,  the fabulously talented Meihsia Liu is our hostess and has a fun sketch challenge to play along with. The details are simple: follow the sketch above and be sure to create a ribbon bow on your project. Simple, right? I hope you will join us and play along! 
I'm continuing to have fun with all of the new Stampin' Up! sneak peek goodies from the upcoming catalog. As soon as I saw the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set, I knew it would quickly become a favorite. I don't know who Betsy is, but she certainly has a fun sense of style! The bird, the big flower behind the bird and flowers on the inside of the card come from this set. Love it! 

I used the color combo from the new Floral District DSP and my guide for the card. I really like how the yellow pops! I cut out and then popped-up the bird and punched circles for some dimension. I also added some spots of bling to dress it up a bit. All of the supplies I used are listed at the end of the post. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to shoot me an email. :) 
Here is a quick shot of the inside of the card:
