Friday sketchers and promarker challenge

Yey! I've been sewing today. I'm trying to finish a quilted bag I started ages ago. I had the front done and needed to sew the scraps together for the backside. I did that yesterday and today I did the lining and put the bag together. Now the only thing remaining is to fix the sides of the inner and outer fabric. It seems a bit complicated because I have to sew so close in to the other seam that is already made, but not so close I run over it. Yuck! I hate doing these things, but hopefully I won't put it off for too long. I have a bag from last year that is waiting to be "handled" (it needs handles) LOL, so I know it can be a while...

Ok, on to the card. I used the sketch from the friday sketchers blog and a colour combo of gold/ruby and gems/jewels from the promarker challenge blog.

I used a stamp from franticstamper and a background stamp from PSX. I wanted this card to be a bit different than my usual ones. I got the black ribbon on a sale today (wasted waaay too much money) and the little heart gems I bought years ago.
