CardPatterns Card

So it turns out that I absolutely LOVE doing the challenges where a website gives a sketch or a theme, and you create a card based on that. I originally thought it would be such a waste of time to sit around and design a card, and then only have one card to show for it. But it is nice to be able to use whatever stuff I want for the cards.... I don't need to make sure that I have enough ribbon for 20 cards to take to card swap. I still like card swap, but this is fun too!

Anyway, here is a card that I made for CardPatterns.
Here is the sketch I was supposed to follow:
Here's what I made:
I decided to keep the color scheme simple. I used a white card, placed black card stock on top of that, and then I used two different black and white patterns.
Then I used red for my color, I put a red ribbon across the card, stamped the 'swirly' and missing you, and traced over the swirly with a thin red marker. And then three red buttons in the corner to finish it off.
