Truly Scrumptious #7 Going Dotty

I've had this sketch pinned up on my noticeboard for a few days and each time I've started to think about it, I had to abandon it as I wasn't happy with the direction in which I was going. HOWEVER, this morning a new die from Spellbinders dropped on my doormat and Hey Ho! an idea for my card.
The antique bookplate is a lovely die and I thought it would be perfect for the centre of this sketch. This beautiful sentiment, which reads 'In a friend you find your second self', is from Penny Black. The dotty paper is from Clare Curd's Signature range. That stack is SO versatile.
Having just looked at the original drawing, I realise that I have got an element missing, but I don't mind, I hope you don't.
