Calorie Counter + prize

I have decided to keep track of my calories and hopefully loose weight.  But, I needed something unique to write my food journal.  So, I went to a big red store and purchase a notebook from the clearance rack.  And used some pretty paper to alter the notebook.  
I worked with the sketch from Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge.  Why don't you play along with us this week?  There is a prize this week, also!

Here is the sketch:

And here is what I created:

I know, there aren't any circles on my card.  I followed the curves of the circles and made the scallop edge of my 'layers' of ruffles.
I used some of the new DSP from Stampin' Up! and used one of the new edge dies.  
For my flower I used a die to create the paper blossom.  I added some very vanilla seam binding and a new designer brad.  
I used a mini vintage tag, and a soft suede marker to write my '1800'.  I also added a big half faux pearl over the hole.  
I used the BFF stamp set to stamp the worn flourish onto the DSP before adding my scallop trims.
Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you play in our challenge this week.
