Sketch Frenzy Friday 091611

Happy Friday all! I'm ready for the weekend, not that it will be restful!! Always too much to do!! But, Friday as you know means another Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge and mini tour!! Here is my card

based on this sketch by Tammy Fite.

I decided to do something a little different! While looking through DSP trying to see what might work, and trying not to use Gently Falling or anything Spice Cake related, I remembered the Spice Cake Fabric and decided to try a flower with that. The card base is Soft Suede that I initially left plain after trying all the patterns in the Spice Cake DSP and deciding none worked like I wanted. I cut 3 different flowers from the fabric using the Fun Flowers die-one of each print. I layered them together and put an Antique Brad through the center. I tried to fray the edges just a tad before attaching the flower element over a More Mustard Scallop circle. The saying didn't work quite like I wanted. I stamped it with Very Vanilla Craft Ink and embossed with Clear EP.  You can barely see it in the scan, but in real life it is readable. It kind of has a Vanilla outline with clear center.  I decided the Soft Suede was too plain and stamped the smaller leaf randomly around the circle and spritzed Soft Suede ink around as well.
