CAS-ual Fridays! It's a sketch...

This weeks' CAS-ual Fridays challenge is to use a sketch provided by Laura:

So, that's what a did but I also changed the orientation of the card base, I just hope that's ok!  I only did a little bit of stamping and used some more of My Mind's Eye patterned papers which I simply cannot get enough of!
Paper: Cardstock (PTI); Neenah Solar White; Patterned Paper (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Pumice Stone DI; Baby Pink & Juniper Dye Ink(CTMH)
Stamps: Unity; Hero Arts (CG211)
Other: Diamond Stickles; Dimensional Squares; EK Success Scalloped punch; Doily (Wiltons)

I used a beautiful Smokey Grey cardstock from PTI for my card base.  I then stamped the very first background mat with the Magical Background stamp from Hero Arts in Juniper ink.  Over that I added some patterned paper from My Mind's Eye, that includes the scalloped piece.

I cut a paper doily in half and placed it under the stamped image. The stamped image which is from a Unity KOM was stamped first in Pumice Stone and then in the baby pink ink.  I cut out the pink half circle and popped that up with some dimensional squares.  And lastly I added some stickles to the pink image, it makes me think of a church window, (not that I have seen them in pink, but I am sure you get my meaning!).

Thank you for popping by and I love all your generous comments!
