Beate's back!

I am so happy that Beate is posting again, and as a bonus, she just got a huge SU order. In fact, she mentioned 15 stamp sets! I can't wait to see what she'll be showing us.
Since Beate is back, so is her weekend sketch challenge. She posts them on Fridays. I don't do them all, but I try. This is my card for this week's sketch. It's a long card, which is harder for me. So I kept it pretty simple. I'm proud that I used so many accessories, especially my new Flower Fusion, which I just got on Friday. (Rhonda and I split them; we are trying to be more cost-effective.) I also used my new DSP, 2 ribbons plus a button, a brad and a pearl. Pretty good, eh? The pink ribbon is the new striped grosgrain, but I didn't want the stripe to show, so I covered it with Chocolate Chip narrow grosgrain. I used sticky strip to adhere them together. The only stamping is the sentiment. My card is a 6 1/2" square scored at 3 1/4". That way it will fit into one of the SU envelopes.
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Fundamental Phrases; Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Urban Garden DSP; Ink: Chocolate Chip; Accessories: Flower Fusion too, Earth Elements buttons, Styled Silver HPH, Pretties kit, Chocolate chip narrow grosgrain, Pink Pirouette striped grosgrain
If you're a demonstrator, don't forget to check out the new WICKED stamper challenges posted today on SCS. You'll love it!
Happy stamping, and Happy Labor Day!
