Vintage Kindness

Happy Friday!  I have a little exciting news!  I created the sketch this week over @ Sketch Frenzy Friday.  We actually take turns and this week, its my turn! {smile}
So, I want to encourage you to play along with us this week.
Here is this week's sketch:


When I was creating this week's sketch, I wanted to add a few shapes that could easily be interchanged.  I didn't want to clutter the sketch with specifics, so you could allow your creativity to flow.  I didn't add any embellishments, so you could place them anywhere you want, or not to include them.
Here is what I created:


I used all current products for this challenge.  The card base is basic gray card stock.  The main panel is matted on a piece of pink pirouette card stock.  The vanilla piece was embossed with the vintage wall paper embossing folder.  I sponged grey classic ink around the edges.  I had a scrap piece of the Twitterpated DSP and First Edition DSP.  So, I off set them, and added them to a lace trim punched pink pirouette card stock.  I wrapped a piece crochet trim around this portion and tied it in a simple knot.  For my decorative 'oval' piece I used the decorative frame embossing folder.  I stamped the sentiment in Basic Grey classic ink, onto a piece of vanilla card stock.  I used the extra wide oval punch to create the shape.  I sponged the edges with the grey ink and adhered the oval piece with foam tape.  To create the flowers, I used the leaf die and lucky limeade card stock.  I then used the floral shape punch that coordinates with the clear buttons to create the blossom shapes.  I punched nine out of cherry cobbler card stock.  I added liquid glue to the backs of the blossoms and adhered them to the leaf stem.  I added half faux pearls to the blossom centers.  I also added two trio clusters of half faux pearls to the right corners of the card.  I added pieces of foam tape to the back of the leaves and adhered the sprig to the card front.  I gave the completed card a spritz of vanilla smooch.
Now, continue with our Blog Hop, and see what Tammy F. has created using my sketch!  And don't forget to join us!
