Layered DSP

Happy Thursday to everyone.  The Creative Sketches challenge team has a fun and different challenge for you.   We want you to layer some dsp (designer series paper) and add some dry embossing to it.  Sounds fun, huh?  Well, they even have a sketch for us, too! Yahoo!
so, here is the sketch:

Ok, before you say anything, I know a few people who aren't fans of flowers.  But, don't just see a flower.  See a shape.  Any shape.  A star, a heart, a box, a circle.  Can you en-vision it now.? Don't let different elements of any sketch throw you.  Now, don't see the wavey line.  That is pretty hard to duplicate.  See a torn edge, a scallop trim, a decorative edge.
So, here is what I created:

See, it looks like I used the sketch as my inspiration, and added what I had or what I wanted, and still followed the guidelines.  I used three different papers of dsp: spice cake and first edition.  I used the large scallop trim for the tasteful trims die.  I wrapped some crochet ribbon around the card, and tied on a bow.  I added one of those small vintage tags.  I stamped 'hello' from tiny tags stamp set in soft suede classic ink.  I sponged all the edges with crumb cake classic ink.  I used vanilla card stock with the vintage wall paper embossing folder for my dry embossing. 
I love the simplicity of this card.  It has a lot of charm without having a thoushand pounds of product.
Play along with us @ Creative Sketches!  Who knows, you may be our next top winner!
