FMS #56 Summer Starfruit Thank You

It's Wednesday, which means it's time for another sketch! This week's sketch comes from Rita Wright.
I went with a tone-on-tone look for this card, using Summer Starfruit as my spotlight color. I paired it with Very Vanilla and River Rock. I really like the soft, elegant look to this card.
I had fun using a Brushed Bronze Designer Button as a way to add a little interest with my bow. I hope you get a chance to play along with this week's sketch. Hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches to blog to be inspired and share your creation. Thanks for stopping by!
