Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #71 - Stampin' Up!

Today I am entering the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Oh I am getting quite hooked! Can you tell?

I love the Subtles colour collection from Stampin' Up! and decided to use a combination of the Rose Red and Pretty in Pink.

I don't have a tag die so I used one of the Apothecary Accent Framelits to make my tag, I punched a hole and added a flourish of Organza Ribbon. I stamped it with En Francais and felt the card needed something to set it off. So I stamped a Doily with a flower from the Mixed Bunch set.

I couldn't decide what shape to add so I stayed with the floral theme and stamped another flower and punched it out with the Blossom Punch.

The sentiment was from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set, punched out with the Word Window and mounted on a piece of card punched using the Modern Label punch. I joined the 3 elements with a Rose Red Glimmer brad (now sadly retired).

Finally I added a few pearls. Just because I love them!

I hope you like it!

 Here is the Sketch - what would you do with it? Are you enjoying my challenge entries? Why not leave me a comment. I love to hear what my blog followers think of the items I post!
