A Flourishes sketch card

I know, I know, calm down! I posted a card! We had spring break last week and though I didn't get to stamp every day, I did make a few cards and it was sooo nice! We stayed local, enjoyed the weather, played 2-hand touch football (which reminded just how out of shape I am!), got some yard work done and just chilled. Has this year not flown by? Someone said that we only have 50 days of school left! Crazy! Ok, on to the card stuff...
In case you weren't aware, I totally *love* Flourishes! Their stamps, their dt, the company - they're just fab in my book! This week, they had a sketch as their weekly challenge. I didn't intend to have this image used as the left side of the circle, but once I colored it and cut it down, it was just too big for the middle of the sketch. I think you can click on the picture to get an up close look at the image. Coloring images is so therapeutic for me! The middle of the sentiment is popped up w/ a pop dot, that's why it looks like it's not flat, because, well, it's not! ;) Was going for that banner effect. I wanted to add something to the card base, so went w/ the swirly embossing folder and pierced on the top and bottom of the design.
Thanks for stopping by!
