I just love this sketch! So simple, yet full of possibilities! You've got to head over to their site HERE to see what everyone else made, too!
I started with a Naturals Ivory card base, sponged the edges and stamped the strip of filigree a couple times with Crumb Cake ink. Then I took a scrap of Crumb Cake card stock and stamped the lacy background stamp using the same ink, and roughed up the edges with my bone folder. (I'm going to save myself time and say all the edges of everything are sponged with Crumb Cake!) Then I stamp that gorgeous flower with Baja Breeze, cut them out, added a large pearl and sat back. Nope. Needed the little rings of pearls too! Well, there's no ribbon, so I had to add more pearls! Be proud of me for keeping it simple! ;)
I'm actually borrowing this Creative Elements set from my up-line's up-line...I think that's right. She's my grandma in Stampin' Up! haha! She's soo not old enough to be a grandma! So sweet of her to let my try this set out. Of course I LOVE it!
