Freshly Made Sketches meets Merry Monday

I love it when I can combine 2 challenges to make a card.  The Merry Monday challenge is to create a card with an all white or all ivory base and to use brown or kraft for the sentiment and for accents.  I chose to use the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches as I thought the sketch would be ideal for the Merry Monday challenge.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card based on both challenges:

I chose to use all white and the 2 embossed panels are from my scraps box.  The main embossed panel is Whimsy by Lifestyle Crafts.  The smaller embossed panel is Petals a Plenty by SU.  I love it when I can start using up all my scraps.  The sentiment which was stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia is from The Stamps of Life - Lights 4 Christmas and was stamped onto one of the  Taylored Expressions Banner Stacklets 1 die.  The goldish lace trim is from my stash.  The poinsettia die is by Dee's Distinctively Die set Poinsettia.  I blinged up the poinsettia with some gold coloured teeny tiny rhinestones.  This sketch would work for a variety of dies, trim and embellishments.  I love how this card turned out and I will probably use it again using different dies, paper, ribbon and sentiments.  It can also be used for different occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries.

Thanks for stopping by!
