Wherever you go, Freshly Made Sketches #50

Hello!  I'm sharing a card I made for {Freshly Made} Sketches #60 challenge.  Take a look at Lesley's  great sketch.

I created this card.

I stamped my sentiment before running the panel of card stock through my Big Kick with the Sunrise Impression plate.  The panel is popped up on dimensionals, as is the piece of white CS beneath it.
The sparkly, purple mesh on this card is something I picked up at a scrapbooking expo a week ago.  In real life it really, really sparkles :o)  I used the linen impression plate on the piece of red CS, then added a few purple gems to finish the card.
This card was created to coordinate with a paper crafted purse and shoes, for one of my customers.  She requested purple, red and bling!  I'll share a couple of pics of the set, at the end of this post.

Thank you taking the time to visit my blog!
