My "Sketch This" Card

I really liked this sketch challenge from the girls over at Sketch This CARDS. And I like the prize for their 3 week contest even more. I decided I have to try to win it.
So here is my entry:

Details, details: I started with SU Cool Carribean CS in a slightly wider card. Man, do I ever regret not stockpiling that SU in-color. The DPs are both from Basic Grey's "Blush" collection. SO pretty. I did a little paper piercing which I will give a tutorial on later. And I distressed the cardstock and DPs with Basic Brown ink. The "miss" stamp comes from SU set "All About You" which I have never regretted buying! I used a Chip Chatter "U" that was already brown in color. The chipboard flower comes from a MM Cheeky Jigsaw shapes pack. This time I painted the chipboard with a Robin's Egg blue acrylic paint and then doused it with a coat of Stickles for lots of glittery shine! When that was dry I added a peach colored prima and a new SU jeweled brad. A strip of this SU velvet ribbon (a gift from my sweet creative friend, Lori) sits on top of a piece of scalloped vellum (another scrap from those wedding invites). And lastly, I scalloped the bottom edge using Julia's technique with the SU slit punch.

I can't wait to see next week's sketch!
