It's Kinda Sketchy

I wish I had more time, or I should say made more time, to participate in the various sketch challenges out there. I am not the most imaginative person when it comes to lay outs for my cards so these challenges are good for me, lol. I have been in a 2 week mode of waking up at 6:30 so this morning I tackled Jen's SFYTT. It is a great lay out!
Here is mine, sans any actual stamping. I originally had stamped something for the center but in the end I didn't like it. Even now as I look at it I think it needs just a tiny sentiment somewhere so I will have to work on that later. But I love the blues and greens. This card just makes me HAPPY!
I bought the Cosmo Cricket paper a few weeks back and have been itching to use it so the entire card started with the paper and went from there. The butterfly uses some October Afternoon paper that I thought matched well.
It's a work day so I am keeping it short. Thanks for stopping by!
Supplies:
Cardstock-SU certainly celery, PTI's aqua, blue paper ??(purchased at Hollo's in Ohio)
Patterned paper- Cosmo Cricket, October Afternoon
other- SU butterfly Sizzix die, SU buttons, linen thread, Spellbinders Blossom die, SU wide grosgrain ribbon, CB Swiss Dots folder, dimensionals, machine stitching, piercing tool

There's just something about blues and greens together that is so soothing. I have a project tomorrow with a similar color scheme. Even sans stamping - so cute!
