Sketch Saturday #68 falling in love again!

Heres my entry for this weeks Sketch Saturday... I loved this sketch but I did struggle a bit with the elements down the left hand side... I tried, flowers, buttons, brads.... but everything just looked plonked! like they didnt really flow with the card......

I decided in the end, to punch circles out of the same paper as the background, and then just doodled on them, and raised some of them to make them stand out...... I'm not totally happy with it, but it definately fits together better than anything else I tried.....
The card is for my hubby for our 10th Anniversary.
And I've been so good lately, I'm sure I'm the same as everyone else when I say that there are so many new stamps coming out to fall in love with, and my wish list is getting longer everyday.... but I thought it was about time I played with some of the stamps I fell in love with a long time ago and have probably only used once!! so I inked up this Rachelle anne Miller beauty!!
