Madison Avenue Thanks - Unscripted Sketches #201

I had to think about the sketch challenge with Unscripted Sketches here for a while, turning the sketch this way and that, until finally deciding on an approach I would use.  I decided to turn the sketch on its side.
Here is my card:

US_Sketch201 
The base of the card is Whisper White, followed by a layer of Rich Razzleberry, and then a layer of Whisper White which had been stamped with the background stamp "Distressed Dots" and Summer Starfruit ink.
The two image panels were adhered to the polka dot background.
Each image panel was a combination of DSP and a stamped image.  I attached a small piece of  scalloped Rich Razzleberry cardstock between the two just to give the card a bit more interest.  The stamp-a-ma-jig was used to stamp the floral image above the leaves, and to place the center of the flower.  I haven't used the stamp-a-ma-jig much in all the years I've had it, but now that I'm getting more comfortable using it, I find I'm using it more.

Stamps: Madison Avenue(SAB), Petite Pairs, Distressed Dots
Inks: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Summer Starfruit
Papers: Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Sycamore Street DSP, Old Olive
Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Scallop border punch, 3/4 by 15/16 oval punch, 1 3/4 by 7/8" oval punch, Word window punch, pearls, dimensional.

WOW - sa-weet stamping technique. Nice impressions with fabulous color intensity (which is not always easy to achieve!).

Turning the sketch works beautifully with the images that you chose to work with. Love your stamped background paper as well.

Thank you so much for choosing to play along with our sketch this week at Unscripted Sketches :)
