Getting Sketchy

I don't enter sketch challenges very often because I don't feel that I'm very good at them.  But I really do want to push myself to try more new things, and to get out of "comfort zone" so to speak.  So, I found a really fun sketch challenge that I chose to try.  I have played along there before.  I love using kraft paper and making "shabby" type cards.  This is what I created this afternoon.
My card uses light kraft paper, October Afternoon pattern papers, a die-cut doily, some burlap ribbons, and a SUPER cute antique milk cap.  I absolutely LOVE antiques, and any time I can incorporate them into a craft project or card, that's super fun for me.  This doesn't have a whole lot of color to it, but it's a lot of fun.  The sentiment is a clear sticker.  I also did a bit of machine stitching on my card.
These are the challenges I'm entering:

  3. I like the burlap ribbons, they really make the card and set the tone. Keep stretching, the card is great.
