Sketch Casing!

Sunday, Sketch challenge #12 was posted on the OWH Stars and Stamps blog. It is a really simple sketch that has the potential for SO much - however, I decided to case the featured card. I had a sentiment that had already been stamped and trimmed into a square - part of my scraps - and I decided to use the color scheme of that square.
I happened to have the Martha Stewart border punch that was used in the featured card, so I used that as well on my card. I did deviate a bit by placing the jewels on the strip of black as I already used the square for my sentiment and didn't need another sentiment. I also added this paper rose from Prima Flowers. I LOVE these little roses. They come in a package with three different colors and there are 10 of each color for a total of 30 little wonderful roses - for about $4.00 at Michael's. Not a bad deal.
Well, I am off to find another card to case - so come back soon for a visit to the Paper Spa - where you can relax and find inspiration.

How pretty! I just love the subtle background you stamped on the sentiment panel! What a great look! I agree - those tiny roses are a steal and they look great too :)

I love the blue and brown together, that scalloped border punch looks great for this sketch too! Nice job!
