I entered this card in the following challenges:

http://thesecretcraftersaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/ - Bingo challenge using gems, swirls, ribbon
Here's the sketch for the MojoMonday challenge
This close-up shows the background details. I started with a white card, added a black panel, then embossed four 1 1/4" strips with my Cuttlebug and embossing template and placed them evenly along the black card to create the panels called for in the sketch design.
This one shows the circle of gems that I love so much.
I used Just Rite stamps from their Sending You Sunshine clear stamp set, and the thinking of you is from Flourishes. A touch of lace from my stash, and some swirl rhinestones complete the look.
Hope you're having a great week!
