Studio Sketches, Goodbye

Good Friday evening to you.  I've got a card today that is based on the Stampin' Royalty Sketch Challenge #120.  It's also using a stamp from one of my favorite stamp sets.

I chose Pear Pizzazz card stock for my card base.  I stamped a piece of Blushing Bride card stock with the water spots from the French Foliage stamp set using Sahara Sand ink.  I then ran it through the Big Shot with the retired Texturz Plates #4.  The edges were distressed with the distressing tool from the Cutter Kit, sponged with Sahara Sand ink and attached to the card front.  I cut out a piece of 
Twitterpated designer paper with the Big Shot and the Paper Doily die.  I trimmed the outer edges of the doily to make it smaller and added that to the card.  I matted a piece of the same designer paper with Riding Hood Red card stock that had the edges cut with the Big Shot and the scallop edge from the Adorning Accents Edgelits dies.  This was attached to the card front,  The image from the Studio Sketches stamp set and the sentiment from the Create a Cupcake stamp set were stamped on Watercolor Paper with Basic Gray ink.  The image was water colored with Blender Pens and Basic Gray, Sahara Sand, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz and Riding Hood Red ink pads.  I distressed the edges and matted it with Pear Pizzazz card stock.  Dimensionals were used to pop it up on the card.  One large pearl and three Basic Pearls were added to embellish the card.  This is a retiring stamp set, one I hate to see go.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend and take some time for fun and being creative.
