Sketch Frenzy Friday 6/22

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

Yah! It's sketch Frenzy Friday. I am so glad for Fridays, it means I get a chance to kick back and relax with my honey over the weekend. However this Friday sort of snuck up on me lollol and I had to make my card tonight.Yikes, so much for getting to bed early. I really liked this sketch when I looked at it earlier this week. Yes, I checked it out on Tuesday morning with full intentions of making a card when I returned in the afternoon. But I sliced my ring finger fairly deep doing some service work at church and was unable to do much of anything until this afternoon. I was supposed to get fingerprinted for a child care job I have for the summer on Wednesday but the lady at the office said I had to come back in 3 weeks. Yikes,I hope that does not delay me getting paid. I need more stamping supplies BIG SMILE!

 Now you all know if you have followed my blog for any length of time I have a very difficult time with CAS. I have to use soooo much restraint when I am challenged to create a card from a sketch like Angela's. It just kills me because I have to sit on my hands to stop from adding more... and more... and more ... well you get the point. But I kind of liked how this CAS card turned out.

What do you think did I pull it off OK?
I used our new In Colors Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple card stock and inks (I just love the new ink pads!) I was able to use a couple other new items on this card, the Textured Embossing Chevron Folder and a couple images from the From My Heart stamp set. I stamped 3 separate images one in black , one in Primrose and one in Raspberry inks. I cut out the banner and the Tea Pot and the back piece in the three colors, then re-layered them all together making sure to add dimensionals to the banner and the tea pot. Add a few little pearls and there you have it! One Clean and Simple card for a friend!
Here is a look at the inside
