Punch Card and Paper Players

Here is this week's sketch challenge over at The Paper Players. It may look simple, but it was REALLY challenging for me!  I've tried a number of cards using this sketch and I just couldn't get them to work. I was having an off stamping week I guess.
Anyway, its always good to push yourself and try new things so I managed to finally make a card I could proudly display. Phew!

Here it is:

I used:
* Warmest Regards (retired, sorry!) stamp set
* Crumb Cake, Naturals Ivory, Early Espresso, Pink Pirouette, and Perfect Plum card stocks
* Perfect Plum designer paper
* Early Espresso Ink
* Scallop border, Heart to Heart, Blossom Bouquet, and various circle punches
* Early Espresso taffeta ribbon
* Basic Rhinestones
* Polka Dot impressions folder

  2. Great job, Natalie! I would never guess this sketch was a challenge for you! Wonderful design! Thanks for playing with the Paper Players this week!
