Papaya Collage and Stamping 411 Challenge

Now that school is out, I have a bit more time to stamp and actually post to my blog.  Today I decided to turn to inspiration from the group at Stamping 411.  The Sketch Challenge they provide on a weekly basis is always great to get the creative juices flowing.  I decided to use one of the stamp sets from the 2012-2013 Idea Book and Catalog called Papaya Collage.  I love its vintage look, and I am somewhat challenged when it comes to grasping that look in my cards so here's my attempt.  Enjoy!

Stamp Sets:  Papaya Collage, Petite Pairs
Card Stock:  Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Very Vanilla
DSP:  Comfort Cafe
Stamp Pads:  Minight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Cajun Craze
Other:  Pearl Basic Jewels, Whisper White 3/8" Taffetta

I'll be featuring this card at an upcoming workshop so any feedback you might have would be greatly appreciated.

Have a wonderful day!
