PPA164 Sketch Challenge, Stampin Up

Welcome.  Todays card is made from the new PPA (Pals Paper Arts) sketch challenge.

A quick and simple card, and so many ways to use the sketch.
Here is todays sketch, why not give it a try? You will find the link to PPA on my side bar.

I decided to use some of the pretty blue/greens we have now and threw in Baked Brown Sugar from the new Incolors for some contrast.   I cut my strips 1 1/2" to about 2" to start and tried them out on the page then trimmed so that they fit nicely, then I put them in the embossing folder and ran them through the Big Shot. 
I decided on the Baked Brown Sugar for my layer as well, but any of the colors would work great.  then all I had to do was choose what stamps and shapes to use for my sentiment.
I tried a few things. I knew I wanted to use Chalk Talk stamp set, but my first try using one of the die cuts from the bundle didn't work well, just too skinny.  So I pulled out the ovals and that worked.

When I was done it looked good, but just a bit plain.  I needed some bling, I love bling. I know the Rhinestones don't show well in a photo, but they look very sparkly in person.

Isn't this just such a neat stamp set? Very different and fun. The larger bread tag is great on a card and really great on a little gift and it has a die in the framelit set. 
As always, thanks so much for stopping by, love to hear what you think.

I loved this card from the first time I saw it in the Pals Gallery. Such a pretty color combination and I adore the added touch of brads. Congrats! You were MY PPA Pick!
