Last week, I got to have lunch with my upline and BFF. She had just returned from Disney and had the NEW catalogue in her hot little hands!! Of course, I scoured every page, we talked about what we liked and what made us scratch our heads and wonder what SU! was thinking (mostly for stuff that retired, but I digress).

As Stampin' UP! always does, there was a prize wheel which could be spun everyday for prizes. One of the prizes Caroline won was a stamp set called World Treasures.

So, when I saw the Stampin' Queens sketch for this week, I knew JUST what I wanted to do!
Here's our sketch for this week:
And here's my card:
Of course, I RARELY keep a sketch EXACTLY the way it's supposed to be, but that's OK! I've always thought of sketches as a creative jumping off point.

I added some bling and I REALLY like the way it turned out!
Here's a little close up:
I just LOVE the new Apothecary Accents Framelits! For the sentiment, I stamped it and then hand cut it so I could use the label as a matte.
