Happy Friday!  I am off today, to another arts and craft fair @ Tramway Community Church, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  I will be selling my hand-crafted paper goods: greeting cards, gift card holders, gift bags, gift boxes, covered notepads, altered notebooks, and more!  My paper crafting style has a shabby chic/vintage feel to it.  If you are in the area, please stop by and say hello!
But, before, I get preoccupied with all of that, I took time out of my schedule to play along with the talented ladies over @ Sketch Frenzy Friday.  Patrice is the designer of this weeks sketch.

I have to admit, when I first saw this sketch, I was stumped.  But, don't fret.  Just see the 'objects' as that.  I took a little creative freedom.  but, here is what I did!

I used a half tea doily for the partial top note die.  I inked the Ex Libris background stamp with baked brown sugar classic ink, for the main panel.  I used the Flower Shop stamp set for the blossoms.  I stamped three blossoms in cantaloupe classic ink, and used the matching punch to 'cut out' the blossoms.  I added a half pearl to the center of each blossom, to give them a more feminine look.  I used the leaves die for the leaves, using soft suede card stock for the them.  I matted the main panel onto soft suede card stock.  The card base is cantaloupe card stock. 
For my sentiment, I used a hostess stamp set for the words; Express Yourself.  I just love this font.  It's pretty without being too flamboyant.  I added a very vanilla button to one side, to help give the sentiment banner a bit of flair.
Thank you for stopping by.  We sure do hope you find time to play along with us @ SFF.  
I'm off to Tramway Community Church, for todays arts and craft fair.
