DRS Sketch Challenges & Scrapbook Essentials BC

Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

Today I checked out four different types of challenges and combined them into two cards. Two challenges per card. I will post the second card in a bit. The first challenge is from DRS Designs http://drsdesignsblog.blogspot.com/ "Use a Tag"  This is a theme challenge and that's all their requirement was.

Then, I incorporated the tag with a sketch challenge from Scrapbook Essentials BC Sketch http://sbebcchallenges.blogspot.com

and this is what I came up with. I am really excited about how it turned out. I am usually not a frilly gal but I can go there when prompted and this card proves it hahahah Again I went way out of my comfort zone. I think I am still on a vintage roll. Every once in a while I REALLY like a card I make and this is one of those. Even though pink is not a go to color I thought this would set off the DSP. 

Here is the DRS requirement portion "Use a Tag".

I really think this sketch and the Tag requirement were meant for each other. I made a small pocket to house the tag on the front of the card. The score lines of the pocket were created by using the new SU scoring tool.
I even made the ribbon rose in the lower left hand corner from a technique I saw over at Sharon Fields blog the other day http://createdbyu.blogspot.com. It too has tiny tags on it.
As usual I had to dress up the inside just a bit.

Well, I hope you all like it. I used the Textured Lattice Impression Folder, the Scallop Edge Punch, Pink Satin Ribbon, Tiny Tag Punch,  Label Punch, Scallop Oval and Small Oval Punches.The DSP is from the new SU Occasions Mini called Attic Boutique. Pretty in Pink  and Very Vanilla CS. A misc. SU stamp retired from 2002 "From the Heart" the inside sentiment is a retired Hostess set called Occasional Quotes. Two current SU Stamp sets called Elements of Style and Just Believe. Oh and a strand of misc. Pink Satin Organdy Ribbon from my stash . The scallop edge just screamed mini pearls.

That's it for this card. I do hope you like it and find some inspiration from the sketch and the Tag challenge. Now it is your turn to go and create something fun.
