An oldie, but a goodie

I love rediscovering old stamp sets that I haven't used in ages and this one, Baroque Motifs, was always one of my faves, but as it's retired it's been moved to the back of the cube in my Ikea cube unit thingy and forgotten about. Suddenly thought about it today so had to hunt for it for this card!

This card is for Create with Connie and Mary's Challenge #251 for the sketch and for Color Throwdown's Challenge #241 to use this gorgeous combo!


And here it is...
