Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 131

Welcome to the last October Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!
So a few weeks ago, my friend Tracey created this gorgeous card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with a gorgeous ruffled paper "skirt" on it (which you can see here) and it looked like fabric... I was shocked that it was paper.  So, she was so kind to send us a link to an online tutorial (which you can see here).  When I saw this week's sketch, right away I got excited because where the scallop is I saw ruffles!  So I headed on over to the tutorial.  I don't think my version is as fabric looking as Tracey's, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  I used the CTMH La Vie En Rose paper pack which I think is gorgeous with it's mostly black and white papers in various patterns and then bam! a rich and beautiful floral.
I used one of Paper Sweeties stamp sets, Life is a Special Occasion for the carriage... for some reason whenever I stamp this one I emboss it with and made it into a "shaker"... not too much here moves because the sentiment "Don't Let Anyone Dull Your Sparkle" from the same set is inside and there isn't much room (I even glued a couple in there so they wouldn't move), but I think it looks pretty.  Some more (roll your eyes here) paper flowers from Art Philosophy, ribbon from Paper Sweeties, the sentiment banners are from CTMH You're the Bomb, a gold button I got from Stampin Up, feathers from Petalo and of course.. the sequins are from Paper Sweeties...  too much?  Well, maybe, but I like it... More is more!
Thanks for stopping by and hop on over to Atlantic Hearts and check it out!

This card is beautiful...I may some day try this technique. Amazing on how much you get on a small card. I sometimes don't have enough room for all I put on a 5 x 7 card.
