Thankful Thoughts

Good morning and Happy New Year!  Did you sleep in this morning?  I am scheduled to work...lucky me!  LOL  Let's get to business, shall we?  It's time for a new sketch challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Our sketch was designed by Melissa and our sponsor for the week is Floppy Latte, who let me pick this gorgeous image called "Ribbon Flair".  When I saw the pretty, vintage silhouettes, I knew I wanted to use one...the hard part was picking which one!   I love the vintage flair...thank you, Floppy Latte!

I resized and printed my image on DP; the sentiment is also stamped on on DP. I distressed the papers and added buttons, Swarovski crystals, and a felt flower for embellishing.  I wish you could see a close-up of the inside of the flower; I wadded up a scrap of black CS and glued it into the inside...it has some really nice texture.  I also added the swirl (from the right side of the diecut) to the felt leaf.

Image: Floppy Latte
Sentiment: Verve (free stamp with an order)
Ink: Printer, Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Autumn Rose and True Black, My Mind's Eye Lost and Found "Madison Avenue"
Embellies: PTI Autumn Rose Buttons, Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Black Diamond"
Extras: SU! Oval Punch, Spellbinder's Die (sentiment), MFT Large Royal Rose Die-namics Die (PTI Autumn Rose Felt), Green Felt (my stash), The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will check out the rest of the DT's creations...why not play along, it's a fun sketch?!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments Challenge: Use Any Sentiment
Digital Tuesday Challenge: Layers
Link Up For Pink: A Dash of Pink
