Sketches in Thyme...#2

I saw this sketch and couldn't wait to get started on it!  Even the color scheme popped right into my head.  I had the pictures in my hand in about 3 minutes.  Then, of course, it was the dreaded task of sorting through all my papers looking for just the right ones.  
Luckily, I found this really fantastic looking background paper from Basic Grey.  The inner piece is from DCWV Old World Paper Stack.
Next was going through miles of ribbon to find just the right color and design....which of course, didn't happen.  I had no clue what to do next.  I just started opening drawers and looking around.  That's when I found the Prima bling!  Man, I LOVE this stuff!  I cut up one of the swirls to make smaller embellies for the leaves.  To add a little more to the middle of the leaves, I wrapped up some pewter wire and adhered it to the centers.  
BTW...the leaves were in the clearance section at Michael's last fall...and boy, did I stock up!
The title is from a sticker set from Bo Bunny.  I wanted the actual title to stand out a little more so I inked up a piece of chipboard and added a little leftover bling.

Another night, another is good!
