Skipping Stones Design Sketch #150

Halfway through my guest month at Skipping Stones Design, and I'm having lots of fun!

Today's sketch is from Heidi Van Laar, and today the SSD DT and guests are all using Fangs or Fur. 

I used the round image from the set to create the background paper for the top half of the card as well as for the round element on the sketch.  I really like how the background piece turned out, kind of subtle and graphic.

I also really like to mix trims, and had fun doing that here.  I've got that brown velvet paired with the light blue velvet circles and then the natural ric rac.  Kind of fun and unexpected.
