My Sketch

I can't believe that it is already Friday.  Wow, this month is screaming by.  I hope this post finds you all well, and happy.  I created the sketch this week over @ Sketch Frenzy Friday.  Yeah, it's mine.  I hope you all can play along with us.  We would love to see what you create with this sketch and your Stampin' Up! materials.
Here's the sketch:

I wanted to use some new designer series paper, so I selected a new paper that is being featured in the Occasions Mini catalog; Attic Boutique DSP. 
Here is what I came up with:

I don't think that anyone is surprised that I have used a favorite stamp set of mine:  Established Elegance.  I just love the graphics on these images.  Very pretty, lovely vintage, and clean, crisp lines.  I stamped the maniquin in soft suede classic ink.  The flourish is a second generation stamp of baja breeze classic ink.  The crown is stamped in daffodil delight classic ink.  The 'label' is sahara sand classic ink.  I selected those colors based on the colors used in the pattern paper.  I just loved the pool party color, so that is why I selected the pool and white pattern paper, too.  I stamped the circle in very vanilla craft and heat embossed with clear powder.  I just love the new buttons, so I tied some white bakers twine through it, and then used a glue dot to hold it to the cardstock circle.  I added foam tape to the back to lift the circle off the card.  The 'congratulations' stamp is from a wedding set.  The inside of the card is blank, so you can say congrats on any new news!
Stop by Tammy B.'s blog and see what she has created.  Then continue the blog hop to see what all these fabulous ladies have created with my sketch!
I hope to see your creations!
