Classic Coastal

I know that i have been absent lately, and I apologize.  But, I've been busy getting some things together, and will have photos to share soon.
Patrice is the designer of this weeks sketch @ Sketch Frenzy Friday.  She makes some challenging and fun sketches.  I hope you become inspired and play along with us.

I found my inspiration from the Teen Pottery Barn catalog.  I just love how they used bold colors with black and white.  So, I ran with it, so to speak.

I used very vanilla cardstock for the base.  I took a pretty pattern piece, from the Modern Medley DSP, and used it for my main panel.  I did a thin basic black cardstock matt.  
Now for the two rectangle pieces.  I wanted something with curves, movement, and pretty.  So, I stamped the polka dot frame, from the four frames stamp set.  Inked this stamp in coastal cabana classic ink, and stamped on very vanilla cardstock.  I added an oval of Modern Medley black text papers for the center.  
I used the four frames punch to create the shape, using the tiny polka dot pattern paper from Modern Medley DSP.  
I created a single blossom using the Floral Fussion sizzlit.  I scrunched the blossoms by hand and distressed the edges with whisper white craft ink.  Applied some dazzling diamond glitter to the wet ink.  I added a lone pearl to the blossom center.
My sentiment is simple.  But lovely.  I added a clay blossom the the sentiment.  I also added the new ruffle stretch trim to the bottom of the sentiment banner piece.
Play along with us this week @ SFF!  We'd love to see what you create!
