Take Note, it's Friday!

Yahoo! It's Friday!  The weekend is almost here, and the talented ladies over @ Sketch Frenzy Friday, have a sketch for you to try!  This week's sketch, is brought to us by Jennifer Weide.  And don't forget to stop by Tammy Baldwin's blog, to see what she has created!

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:
So, I wanted to use the same package of DSP that I opened a few weeks ago.  The blue pattern paper, and the rooster pattern paper are from the Beau Chateau DSP package.  I used the vintage wall paper embossing folder on the blue pattern paper to give it some more texture.  I used the tag die to cut the rooster paper.  I stamped the large notebook flourish in black craft ink and used clear embossing powder, then I heat set it.  I stamped the words and the body form in soft suede classic ink.  I stamped the crown in marina mist classic ink.  I edged both pieces in Early Espresso classic ink.  I stamped the oval piece in early espresso classic ink, the crown in blushing bride classic ink, and the 'for you' in soft suede classic ink.  I crumpled the baja breeze seam binding to give it that worn-look.  I took a piece of vanilla seam binding and dyed it with pink pirouette classic ink.  I squished the two multi-bows under the vintage brad.  I wanted to give my card some sparkle.  So, I added three tiny rhinestones; 2 randomly and the third on the oval tag.
Thank you for taking a look at my card.  Now, with the inspiration you have received from the design team, make a card using our sketch and your Stampin' Up! products, and lets see what you make!

This is beautiful, Sharon! I really like the way you have embossed the frame on the top panel, and then the second one is peeking out from behind. And the touches of pink work really well, too. Hope you have a great day!
