Sweet Sunday Sketch #40

Karen from The Sweetest Thing has weekly sketches; I've always loved looking at them and keep meaning to have a go, but it doesn't seem to happen.  So I changed that and made a creation for her latest sketch.
Here is the sketch to work with:

And here's my creation:

I was looking to use a colour I hadn't used for a while and I chose Tangerine Tango.  This bright colour matched up nicely with Baja Breeeze and Kraft.
So I've started with a base card in craft, then added a piece of the Designer Series paper in Tangerine Tango.  I've used the eyelet border punch to add a strip along one side of the Tangerine.
Then with assorted DP and cardstock, I've punches out NINE circles to follow the sketch.  The Baja Breeze has been stamped with the flower from Seeing Spots. I've added a few embellishments such as the button in Baja, a small rhinestone and a flower brad.
Lastly, I've added a sentiment from Best Yet and a row of paper piercing.
So there you have it, my first creation with the SSS - thanks Karen.  I also have to say thanks to Sarah-Jane who inspires me greatly - her creations for these sketches are always fabulous.  And I love that sweet and simply style which these sketches lend themselves to.

Stamps: Best Yet, Seeing Spots
Cardstock: Kraft, Tangerine Tango, Baja Breeze, Designer Series paper
Ink: Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango
Others: Baja Breeze Button, Rhinestone, eyelet border punch, paper piercer, twine, flower brad, circle punch
