THE OUTLAWZ WEDNESDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE

The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch challenge has given this sketch to use:
 
and this is my MONOCHROME CAS card entered into the challenge:


I knew as soon as I saw the sketch that I had a die cut Fleur de Lis and matching paper that I just needed to use for this.  I hand cut a tag in the same shape as the sketch that I had already printed the Thomas Edison quote onto.  All the edges were inked/distressed, and I added a heart shaped gem and four round gems, and my card was complete.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges too:
