My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #123 - Bow Tie Wedding

Welcome to My Craft Spot's Monday Challenge #123!
I was able to play along with this week's challenge, but didn't have a chance to share until today. This week's My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #123 is a FUN Sketch Challenge. Simply create a NEW - no backlinking, please - project using sketch provided.
The fun part about sketches is that you can interpret them ANY way you like. I opted for making a Wedding Card using papers from the My Mind's Eye Meadowlark 6x6 Paper Pad and Carta Bella Linen White Cardstock for my base. I used my Xyron Mega Runner  to adhere all the layers together.
I replaced the arrows on the sketch for a "Groom Small Bow" and a "Bride Small Bow" made using the JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot "Small Bow" Metal Die and adhered them using the Xyron 3/8" High Tack Adhesive Dots.
The "Groom Small Bow" was cut from Bazzill Black Tie Cardstock and embellished with a tiny black button. For the "Bride Small Bow", I added some tulle, Ivory Jute String - available at the My Craft Spot Store - and a clear rhinestone. I turned the bow's end flaps - is that what they are called? - down so it would resemble a tied sash bow from a Wedding Dress.
I skipped the third arrow and added a "Large Wavy Banner" from the JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot "Ribbon Banners - Wavy" Metal Dies. I stamped the "Special Day" Sentiment from the JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot "Big Sentiments" Stamp Set with VersaMark Ink and then embossed it with White Powder. And lastly, I sprinkled a few Tuxedo Sequins - available at the My Craft Spot Store.
I hope you have enjoyed my BOW TIE WEDDING Card. Although I'm OK with how it turned out, I do feel like something is missing. Maybe Ribbon? What do you think?
NOW, its YOUR turn! Link up your SKETCH CHALLENGE projects to the My Craft Spot Blog by Monday, January 27th 11:59 MST for your chance to win this week's prize.
