Simply Beautiful SK

I'm super late at posting this, and I apologize for that.  Work has been a bear, and I haven't been home all week.  My husband and I finally got to see each other last night, so we went out to dinner.  Dinner was very nice and we got to actually talk to each other.  How wonderful.  
The wonderfully talented ladies over at Sketch Frenzy Friday, have a very user friendly sketch challenge. Jennifer brought us this sketch, and the beautiful part is that you can basically use anything you have on hand, and it will be wonderful!  You can easily stamp on the middle piece if you are needing to ink up a special stamp set, or just use pattern paper!

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

See what I mean?  I used two scrap pieces of DSP and a few scrap pieces of solid cardstock, and Viola!  I stamped a simple and pretty fond sentiment, added a few half faux pearls and look how pretty!  The only trick here is to use a light pattern paper as your larger piece, so when you stamp right on the DSP, you can actually read it.  If your larger pattern paper is either dark or too busy, the words get lost.  And when you put the busier/vibrant pattern paper as your smaller piece, it helps showcase the colors/design.
I hope that you can play along with us, and who knows, you may be our next winner!

What a great idea. I never remember to stamp on DSP. I just use it for the beauty. Thanks for reminding me and the great card.
