On this Friday, Tammy is the designer of this week's sketch over @ Sketch Frenzy Friday.  Tammy typically makes sketches that are generally considered Clean And Simple (CAS).  I love her style.  Her sketches allow you to add layers/embellishments, or keep it CAS.
here is  this week's sketch:

and here is what I created:

This card used some scrap pieces I had of the new Modern Medley DSP.  I love the classic black and white color combo.  And the images are just pretty.  But, I wanted to add a splash of color, so I selected a light color: pear pizzazz.  I felt this color 'grounded' this classic color combo.
I used pear pizzazz cardstock for the card base.  I added a basic black cardstock matt to the subtle dsp.
I also matted the black and white pattern papers with pear pizzazz.  I matted the white and black pattern papers with basic black card stock.  
I wanted to add a few embellishments to give some visual interest.  I wrapped some very vanilla seam binding around the music sheet pattern paper and did a zig zag machine stitch to secure the seam binding to that panel.
I created a paper blossom from pear pizzazz card stock and adhered it to the black polka dot pattern paper.  I added some leaves that were punched with the 2 step bird punch.
For the sentiment, I stamped the itty bitty banner onto very vanilla cardstock.  I inked the sentiment with basic black classic ink.  I fussy cut the banner out, and adhered it to the card front with foam tape.
I hope that you have been inspired to play along with us @ SFF.  I just know that we would all love to see what you create with our sketch!
