Vintage Artisan

Aww, it's Friday!  I have been super busy over the holidays, and so I missed last week's challenge over @ Sketch Frenzy Friday, among other challenges.  Unfortunetely, I couldn't find time to craft.
I am this week's 'creator' of the sketch for the sketch challenge over @ SFF.  I hope you like this sketch.  I wanted to give you something different and something fun!  Enjoy! 
Here is this week's sketch:

Here is what I created:

I used all Stampin' Up! products to create this card.  I am sharing a sneak peak of some new products that will be available next month.  I started with crumb cake card stock as the card base.  The first layer is Pink Pirouette card stock.  I added a pieced  of Tea for Two DSP for the main panel.  I added a 'new' paper doily.  (I have to admit, I just LOVE these new products!)  The square piece is very vanilla card stock matted with pink pirouette card stock.  The stamp is available during Sale-A-Bration next month as well, in a set called Vintage Verses.  The stamp is done is basic black classic ink.  The paper flower and 'LOVE' ticket are available in the Artisan Embellishment kit.  I used a retired punch to create the leaves.  I used whisper white craft ink to distress the edges of the leaves.  I wanted to add some pearls, so I took my liquid white glue and made a thin line to create a curve, and applied the pearls.  I tied some pink pirouette taffeta ribbon around the bottom third of the card.  And viola! 
I hope that you get an opportunity to play along with us this week.  The new year will be celebrated in a few days, so please carve out a bit of time to play along with us @ SFF.

Happy Crafting!  hugs, Sharon W.
