Challenge # 99....

Over at A La Card Monkey, they are one off reaching their 100th challenge.  I have been keeping my eye out for it so that I could create something for their big 100, but when I saw this great little sketch, thought I would have a go.  I'm not too sure about it at the moment, but will sit on it for awhile.  Usually if I am like this, I find it is best to leave it alone & not add as sometimes you will ruin it....

You've made a very elegant bow with the antique brad. Lovely! I am itching to add a sentiment, though. hee hee Thanks for playing along with our Monkey Challenge.

Love your card. Don't you just love the seam binding ribbon? I know I do. It's so versatile.
