Inspired By and Unscripted Sketch

 I love being on summer vacation because I'm so inspired to create.  During the school year I have to drag myself into my basement to stamp!  I saw this picture on the Inspired By challenge blog and just had to play.  Just so pretty!

 So the first thing that caught my eye was the lamp shade.  I made a rosette from red gingham paper to match the shade.  Then I just used the colors.  I saw black, white, and gray in the photo so I used riding hood red, smoky slate, and Neenah white cardstock as my base.  The black and white dp is from SU's retired Night and Day.  I added the red pinked circle on top of the rosette and ran it through the swiss dots folder and then a black gingham bow.  The sentiment is from Papertey Ink's Stylish Sentiments: Birthdays.
I used this sketch from Unscripted Sketches.  I was so inspired by those rectangle shapes.  I had to do some math to figure out the sizes of them!
Thanks for stopping by today!
