The Next Level Challenge 3

I am actually very pleased with the result of this card; made as my entry for the Next Level Challenge blog, but it was a very different and challenging task for me. It reminded me of when I went to my first workshop back in 2000 and I was one of those folk saying 'I'm not very crafty or creative and don't really have a clue about doing this stamping stuff!" I'd like to think I've progressed since then and also to say tread carefully to those of you who utter those same words! It is highly addictive, but loads of fun, satisfying and theraputic.
The card follows or at least loosely, a sketch which is below. It had to have a removeable tag and the curved edge pocket.
I've used Garden Whimsey, Paisley and Frames with Flourish stamp sets and my colour combo is old olive, pale plum, perfect plum, certainly celery and whisper white. Ribbon, pretties kit and some other mini half pearls enhance my card along with a bit of embossing in white and some punch work on my tag.
Here is the sketch layout that was set.

Why don't you have a go there's a challenge there with prizes every week.
