So Grateful

I've received my box of new Stampin' Up! products earlier this week, and I'm just loving the new stuff!  There is this pattern paper that reminds me of a French flea market:  Attic Boutique.  It has a wonderful mix of pattern, text, and pretty colors.  
It's Friday, and its another blog hop over @ Sketch Frenzy FridayTammy F., over at Sketch Frenzy Friday has created a wonderful sketch for us to work with this week.  

Check out the sketch:

Here is what I did!

One of the great things about this sketch, is that the empty space can be pattern paper, or an image, or dry embossed cardstock, etc.  Very versatile and easy to work with.  Also, the rectangle piece at the upper right doesn't have to be rectangle.  I used one of the Label Framelits, to die cut the First Edition DSP to make the first layer of my 'rectangle'.  Then I stamped one of the frames from the Frame It stamp set, and used the hand-held punch to create the shape.  Then I used a wood sheet to die cut a butterfly from the Butterfly Die.  I then made a multi-loop bow with some cherry cobbler seam binding, and then added a pretty in pink button on top.  I added a half faux pearl to the button.  I made a quick tiny tag with the Tiny Tags stamp set and jewelry hand-held punch.  The banner-sentiment piece was made with the petal cone die and the Apothecary Art stamp set.  To give my 'rectangle' piece a little shabby feel, I stapled a scrap piece of crochet trim to the left edge.
Now, head over to Tammy B.'s blog, to see what she has created.  And, don't forget to leave some love, and let me know what you think!
