Good Tuesday morning! We have another fun sketch this week, which was drawn by Jessica! Like I said, it's a fun sketch, but I was a bit stumped at first.... Finally I decided I could showcase some pretty DP and little "trinkets".... The stamping was kept to a minimum on this card...just the sentiment.

I bought some of the new Basic Grey "Out of Print" DP on my last trip to Archiver's. What a great line; it's funky, eclectic, and the colors are fabulous! I chose a couple of patterns, added some vellum circles and filled them with assorted embellies. This card reminds me a bit of the 80's with the pink and black color scheme.

Sentiment: SU!
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: SU! Blushing Bride, PTI True Black, Basic Grey DP, The Paper Studio Vellum
Embellies: Making Memories Charms, Pink Button (my stash), Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Lt. Rose", SU! Black Grosgrain Ribbon
Extras: Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Die-namics Rolled Rose Die, MFT Felt, DMC Floss

Here's a link to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog so you can check out the sketch for yourself and see all the goodies the DT has created. I hope you will play along too!

Thanks for stopping by today; have a good one!

So pretty! I love all the little charms and that rolled rose. They look cool over the vellum circles--going to have to give that a try.
