JAI 207 Just add a sketch

Hello and happy day to you all!
I've had a lovely week this week - I got to catch up with a crafty friend and spend hours chatting about stamping. DH was horrified I could spend four hours talking about stamping. My reply was that we had only just scratched the surface and could have easily spent another four hours talking about life, stamping and everything! 

I have also only just scratched the surface of using all the new stamping goodies I got in my last SU! box but you will see some of it for the card I made for this week's Just Add Ink challenge. This week we have a sketch for you. The first one I've ever made - eeekk!

And here is what I made of it.

I don't think I'm ever going to go off the idea of using dollies I love the lacy detail - so girly! Aside from the dollies I did a fair bit of heat embossing another fav technique of mine. Using the chevron border punch on the large tag was a last minute idea but I love the peek a boo effect you get with the DSP beneath.

Do check out the rest of the DT for some great inspiration for this sketch.
