Lullaby Bassinet (Card Patterns #99)

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Those of you in the eastern part of the U.S., I hope the weather wasn't too bad for you.  Here in the west it's actually been pretty mild, kind of weird for January. 

Anyway, on to the fun stuff..the card for today!  Today's card is based on the sketch below from Card Patterns.  I just flipped it upside down.  If I'm being totally honest, I made this card for a submission request and it was rejected and it happened to fit this sketch challenge.  I just added the ribbon.  I know I could have kept that to myself, but I felt like I was being dishonest and so I came clean. :)  I used purple on this card because we weren't allowed to use pink or blue at all and I still wanted it to be feminine.  Also, I don't use purple very often and I wanted to use some of my purple supplies.  I think it came out fairly cute, but I guess the judges didn't think so.  I must say, I do like it better with the addition of the ribbon.  It softens it a bit and adds just the right touch.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!  Happy Crafting!
