Sketch Challenge Using Paper Scraps

This is the sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers for the week, amazing I am on time with this one! I tend to be very literal with my translations of sketches so here is the sketch:

and here is my card:

My only complaint is that I didn't have a smaller oval, that is the smallest one from my Nestabilities dies that I have. I don't have the Stampin' Up punch which I am thinking would fit the sketch size. I used scraps leftover from my pack of Basic Grey Urban Prairie, the birds glued under the clear buttons are cut out of that paper too. The flowers are die cuts from Cuttlebug, I used cool caribbean and the pink from the paper pack. I like the contrast with the black paper. The only stamping this time are the words! I really had a lot of fun figuring this one out and piecing it together - I like a challenge!
