Sketch Frenzy Friday-1-28-11--MDS (I must be addicted!)

Hi Stampers:

It's time once again for Sketch Frenzy Friday. Here is our sketch by Robbie Rubala:

When I first looked at this sketch, I thought "piece of cake!" Boy, was I WRONG!! It was not a piece of cake for me. Let me show you my interpretation:

As you can tell, I just couldn't leave the design alone! First I made a background of Pretty in Pink, and then overlaid two of the design elements with the rounded corner punch stretched out and the 1-1/4" square punch stretched out and flattened and filled both of them with Pattern 2 of the Shades of Spring Designer Series Paper--only available thru My Digital Studion. I then added two layers of the Scallop Circle Punch--one white and a smaller one on top in Pretty in Pink. So, I'm looking at the design and I think, "this needs SOMETHING." So I added a strip of the Satin Ribbon in Pretty in Pink, put my Thank You on the scallop circle punch. The Thank You is from the Curly Cute stamp brush set. I STILL didn'ty like it, so I added a Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon bow. Then the upper right corner looked bare, so I went to the Baroque Motifs stamp brush set and added the swirl. The sentiment and the swirl are both colored Early Espresso. At this point, I decided to leave it alone. It may be a little busy, and it is not exactly as Robbie sketched, but I think it will do. I think I sometimes follow the sketches a little too closely, so I guess it's good to deviate once in a while!
For the next stop on our tour go to MELINDA COUDEN's blog. You can upload your own take on the sketch on the SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY blog, or start the tour there. Thanks for looking.
