Stamping Inkspirations - Sketch Challenge

Hello again!  Twice on the same day!!
Well every once in a while the Team Hop shows up on the same day as the 
Stamping Inkspirations Hop. 
Most of the time I opt out and only hop with the team.
 But it was a sketch this month...and I can't really pass up a chance to play with a sketch!!

I decided to stick with the Fresh as a Daisy dsp since I haven't used it much and thought this paper made my job pretty easy in using the sketch.  
I thought it would be fun (since I pretty much stuck with the sketch as it was)
to make 2 cards, one in portrait and one in landscape and change up the sketch that way.

The large white shape made me think of a tag, so that is what I used. 
 I chose to double up on my sentiments and I stamped on that as well as heat embossing a sentiment on black with white powder.  I wrapped linen thread around the tag and placed my sentiment slightly below the thread.
The tag is Bubble Bath cardstock and my strips of dsp are 3/4" wide.  I added a fourth strip to the landscape card and you will see below I added some to the inside of both cards.

I finished my card with some incolour dots in Moody Mauve.
Please keep hopping and see what everyone else has made.
I'm looking forward to checking them out too!
Happy Stampin'
