It's Friday!  that means two things for me.  First, the wonderfully talented folks over @ Sketch Frenzy Friday have a sketch challenge for us.  And second, my husband is the best man, in a wedding this weekend.  So, we get to get all dressed up, and attend a beautiful event  But, before we head into the weekend, Kim Innis has this fabulous sketch:

Here is my card:

Before we get into the card recipe, please stop by Tammy B.'s blog to see what she has created.
Now, back to the card.  I used the Beau Chateau DSP, First Edition DSP, and Creative Elements and Established Elegance stamp sets.  Shocking, huh?  I used Crumb Cake and Soft Suede cardstock.  I have to admit, these two cardstocks are my all time favorites. :)  
I stamped the larger random swirl and the 'No. 3' in Crumb Cake classic ink onto the First Edition DSP.  For my circles, I stamp the seal in Marina Mist classic ink and used the 1 1/4" circle punch.  Stamped the crown in Soft Suede classic ink, and used the  1 3/8" circle punch.  I punched a circle with the 1 3/4" circle, then stamped the body form in Crumb Cake classic ink, the swirl in a 2nd generation stamp in Baja Breeze classic ink.  The fountain tip is Soft Suede classic ink, and the Established is stamped in Sahara Sand classic ink.   
For the ribbon, I used Baja Breeze seam binding.  I frayed one end, and pulled one thread to create the scrunchy.  
For the sentiment, I stamped the saying in Soft Suede classic ink, and added a faux half-pearl at each end.  
To give my card that aged look, I sprayed some water in the upper right corner and scrunched the DSP.  I also sponged every thing in Sahara Sand classic ink.
Thank you for stopping by.  I will post some photos on the Bunco prizes I created soon.  Possibly next week.   Have a wonderful Friday, and a safe weekend.  And, please play along with us @ Sketch Frenzy Friday.
