Atlantic Hearts Sketch 95

This week's sketch at Atlantic Hearts is one that can be simple or very detailed... I chose to create a very detailed project. My card is created of several layers and I have to say that the evening that I chose to work on this card was one where my brain and my hands decided not to co-operate with each other. It was one of those nights where my mind was on one wavelength but my hands were on another planet, I think... It ended up taking me almost 5 hours to finish this! I think we have all had those creative times when things just don't come together as easily as we would like - for example, it took me it took me forever to tape the edges of the fabric to create the bow - I ended up doing it four times in total to try and get it straight and even this piece didn't end up straight but I finally had to give in as it was past 2am at that time... 

So, here is the final project - I am pleased with how it finally turned out 
(even though I got to bed at 3am).

The card size is 6x6 inches.
