Saturday Sketch Challenge

Hi All,
Gave myself a good amount of time to craft this weekend, as I was trying to get a few Easter cards done and make plans for an upcoming stamp club. I wanted to complete at least one of the cards that I will present to the ladies and was fresh out of ideas, I knew the DP I wanted to use and had an idea for a technique to showcase, just needed a layout. I happened on over to the Saturday Sketch Challenge at Stamping411 Blogspot and this was their great sketch:

And here is what I came up with:
I took a little bit of liberty on the center panel and really liked how it came out. Here is what I used:
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso and First Edition DP (great stuff!)
Ink: Early Espresso
Stamp Set: Elements of Style
Punches: Small Oval, 1" circle and Modern Label
Other: Victorian Lace, Large sticky back pearls, brights brads, Big Shot and Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, water color pencils and blender pens
Thanks for stopping by!

oh my gosh! What a cool idea to color the dsp! I was looking at it, and it took me a few minutes to realize it's part of the DSP. How cool! Great use of all the elements. I love your vintage ribbon and the brads and pearl on the tab.
