PPA 124 A sketch Challenge

Evening All,
Well I just finished my first mini card making marathon of the night! I made Valentines and Easter Cards for some of my relatives as part of their Christmas gifts. My Great Aunt is 100 and is a card junky! There isn't a holiday that she doesn't have a card for!!:) She is also a very devout woman, which clearly works for her as she is 100 and can walk without assistance and is still sharp! So when I saw the Easter Dove a'la carte stamp in the upcoming Occasions Mini I instantly thought of her! Only problem was deciding on my layout. So I went on over to the Pals Paper Arts blog and here was their sketch:

And here is what I came up with:
I totally saw this stamp gold embossed and I was recently given this beautiful gold ribbon by my new downline and I thought "perfect!" I just made ten of these and am happy with each one and think she will also be quite pleased!
Here is my recipe:
Paper: Lovely Lilac (retired) and concord crush DP
Stamp sets: Easter Dove and Simply Soft
Embellishments: Heat tool, gold embossing powder and gold organza ribbon
Punches: 1 1/4" square and scallop square
Thanks for checking it out!
