Fly Away Flourishes

*** new photos posted 10-July ***

So, it started similar base to the last one, but I added in the sketch #22 from CardPatterns, well it took on it's own lil life :) It's still got the CB Swiss Dots action, and the Nestabilities done up circle edging with ANW red cardstock, and the round-ness (Shaped Cards challenge #8 at Allsorts), but I think that's about where the similarities end! I used the CB butterfly die and embossing folder and then sanded the dots down (you can see a bit better if you click on the up close view below). And I added on some "Gems and Pearls" (Creative Inspiration challenge #16) from Michaels and Recollections respectively, then stamped the Divine K&Co stamp to finish it off! Oh yes, and the Offray ribbon of course :) And it all fits into the red, white, blue color challenge at OCC. And let's not forget the "corners & curls" at DCD #4- my take on it though is NOT having corner and of course the curly gem/pearl flourishes. Oh yes, and the gems + pearls + ribbon = pile it on 3 diff embellie types challenge!

And so I pose the same question as last time... would you buy this? Perhaps altered to your colors/sentiment theme? Another Etsy potential? Better photos would be taken for sale posting, of course.Be honest... comments/thoughts/suggestions sooo appreciated :)
