I really liked this sketch challenge that I did a few weeks ago and decided to try another one.  There were so many amazing cards in the gallery on SCS that I felt inspired to give it another try.  I found a paper stack DCWV The Far East in my stash and realized that I had been hoarding it.  Time to use it!  I love this stack and have been diligently trying to use a variation from it (some of it was used for my flipbooks).  Anyway, I found that Stampin’ Up! Blush Blossom is quickly becoming a favorite (is it possible to have a new favorite every month?) and love it as a card base!  I used silver embroidery thread to wrap around the brads and add some subtle sparkle.  I think I should have left it off, but too late!  *smiles*
