WMS Sketch Challenge #32

My card for WMS Sketch Challenge #32 was an interesting experiment in evolution. I didn't exactly intend for it to be so "shabby chic" looking, but though I had a couple of ideas to start with, most of it just sort of happened as I was putting it together! This is the fun of creating. Sometimes it works out amazingly...other times...not so much. But this one is growing on me.

Here's the lovely & simple sketch:

And here's my version, all layered up. (I'm a huge fan of layering, though I really do like clean & simple too...I just have to figure out how to do it right so that I like it! ;)
