Global Designer Project - Sketch Challenge

     Hello! Here I am again with another card for the Global Design Project Challenge! I absolutely LOVE these challenges. They have been so much fun to do, are fairly easy, and give me content for my blog. Lol. Plus, I love making cards, or anything crafty. I keeps me busy during the day and allows me to escape the daily pain that surrounds me. For this week's challenge we have been given a sketch. It is a pretty simple sketch too. I love simple! The problem with simple is sometimes they are hardest cards to create. Here is the sketch:
     I started my card with a 5-1/2"x 8-1/5" piece of Very Vanilla. I folded this in half to
create my A2 sized card. I then cut out a piece of DSP (Designer Series Paper) from the 6"x 6" stack of Playful Palette. I cut this piece to 1-1/2"x 5-1/4". I got out a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock and cut this to 4"x 5-1/4". Then I got out a piece of the FREE Sale-a-Bration Glimmer paper in Sweet Sugarplum and cut a piece to 1/2"x 5-1/4". 
    Next, I got out the stamp set Perpetual Birthday Calendar from the Annual catalog. I
wanted to use one of the groupings for the background on the Blushing Bride piece. I used the stamp with the little flowers. I wanted a tone-on-tone look so I used the ink pad Blushing Bride. I stamped the stamp several times at an angle twisting and turning the stamp to make the flowers fit well. This was very easy to do because, this stamp set is photopolymer which means it is a clear stamp. I wanted to do this first before I glued it down and the little piece of DSP on top so that I could stamp off the page and it looks continuous. 
     Then, I went ahead and glued the Playful Palette piece on top, and lined it up at the very bottom of the Blushing Bride piece. I then took the Glimmer paper and glued it on top of the two pieces. Next, I glued the whole piece onto the Very Vanilla card base.
     Now it was time to work on my sentiment. I used the stamp set "All Things Thanks" from the Occasions catalog. I had decided I wanted to use my square Framelits to
match the squares in the Playful Palette paper, so I picked a stamp that would fit well. I started with stamping on a piece of Very Vanilla with the same stamp I used on the background in Blushing Bride again. After I stamped an area the I knew would be big enough, I went ahead and stamped my sentiment using Basic Gray. I wanted something softer then Basic Black. Using my Big Shot, I die cut the stamped piece with the Stitched Shapes Framelits making sure I had it all lined up. Next, I took a piece of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and die cut it with the Layering Squares using one with the scallops. Then I glued the two pieces together. I placed Stampin' Dimensionals on the back and placed it onto the card over on the right just like the sketch.
     Next, I grabbed my Basic Pearl Jewels and placed then around on my card mainly
on the right side. I used two different sizes. I then wanted to decorate the inside of the card so I stamped the same stamp I had used for the backgrounds and stamped in Blushing Bride in the left bottom corner. And I am all finished!
