Thinking of You

Happy Friday!  It's time again for another blog hop from Sketch Frenzy Friday.  The wonderful Deb C. has provided us with a this week's sketch: 

Deb has provided us with a very user-friendly sketch.  There is a lot of different possibilities to create something special, unique, and pretty.  Here is what I did with this sketch:

I wanted to make something pink and something vintage.  So, here it is!  I used crumb cake card stock as the base.  I added a panel of pink pirouette card stock under the First Edition DSP panel.  I stamped on the text paper.  I stamped a flourish in crumb cake classic ink.  Along with a splatter mark in pink pirouette classic ink.  I stamped the pen top in various lengths in basic black classic ink.  I wanted the text paper to be 'dressed-up' and a bit classy.
I stamped the typewriter in basic black onto a piece of very vanilla card stock.  I stamped the splatter in pink pirouette classic ink along two of the edges.  I also sponged the edges with crumb cake classic ink.  The blossom was made from a retired emosslit: Birds & Blooms.  I crumpled the blossom and stacked them off-set.  For the center of the blossom, I added the small vintage faceted button tied with linen thread into a bow.
For the sentiment, I used a retired stamp set: Bird on a Branch.  I stamped the sentiment in basic black classic ink and sponged the edges (again) with crumb cake classic ink.  I used a square punch to create the banner ends.  I used a row of dimensions to pop the sentiment banner off the card front.  
Finally, I gave the whole card a sprtiz of vanilla smooch.
Now, head on over to Tammy F.'s blog to see what she has created with this fabulous sketch.  And don't forget to visit the blogs of the other design team members.  I'm sure that you will be inspired to play along with us @ Sketch Frenzy Friday.
