365 Cards Sketchy Sunday!!

Happy Sunday to you! Today's sketch is a classic! Nice clean lines and lots of room for interp. I love this sketch and wanted to get stampy with it. Here is what Pam gave us over at 365 Cards:

And here is my take on it:
You know this is the first time in a long time that I actually got my card finished with plenty of time to spare. Whew! With this baby only DAYS away, I need to really get my act together and finish as much as I can. My DH gets home thurs. and after that we are going to do everything needed to get this baby out!
Ok, as far as explanation goes, I overlapped my stamping to create my blue paper. Lots of curly stamps with red and blue. I added a lot of scallops which gives this original "boy" card a lot of "girl" flair. And the big button... can you say LOVE IT! It is so stylish and vintage its so fun to look at. I picked up the large embossed scallop border punch and it is every bit as fun as it looks. 

Ok... kids are making a mess, must run! Hope you have a glorious day!
