Sketch 08 challenge

This is my first attempt at a "challenge" and at "blogging" about it. This challenge comes from Operation Write Home's Stars and Stamps blog. As you can see I got the diagonal backwards - I realized this after I uploaded the pic...but nevertheless its the same idea. The papers are from my "scrapbook factory" software program...I printed them onto white card stock. The stamp was from the dollar store. The circle cut outs were done by hand then I used my Martha Stewart heart cutter to punch out the edges. I'm a newbie so I don't have a cuttle-bug or cricut...yet! lol.  I colored it in with some gel pens for a little sparkle then I stamped my sentiment "girly girl" over the top of that using acrylic stamped letters, then I added a ribbon and some gem embellishments for a very "girlie" card. What do ya' think? Thanks for looking!
