Happy Friday! and a sketch for you, too!

Hi - I'm back with a quick post for you! It's a little bit of a sneak peek, too!  This is a new Stamp Set from the SU! Summer Mini that will be available on May 1st (tomorrow!).  It's called Elements of Style.  I just love all the images from this set.  I also used the Peony from the tutorial I posted here.  Here's the 2S4Y #51 sketch that gave me the inspiration:
I like the simple and clean lines of this sketch.  Here's a look at the full card for you:
Are you wondering what color blue cardstock I used?  I actually pulled that one out of the vault - it's the SU! retired Cool Carribean paper, which I just love.  Luckily, I bought an extra pack and bring it out every once in a while to use that pretty aqua blue.  Here's the recipe for you:
{Peony Style Card}
All supplies Stampin'Up! except where noted

*Cardstock: Cool Carribean, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Pretty In Pink
*Inks: Melon Mambo Classic Pad, Creamy Caramel Classic Pad (used with a sponge dauber to soften up the oval punched edges)
