Perfect Card for a Freshly Made Sketch

WHEW! What a weekend! My oldest daughter graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the middle daughter finished her junior year at UW-Oshkosh and our son had his Senior Prom! And the graduate left for Europe today! Lots of wonderful celebrations kept me from stamping but that's life, and one I'm so very thankful for!

So I finally got to play today with some new DSP, Delightful Daisy and new ribbon, 1/4 inch Daffodil Delight double-stitched ribbon.  Paired that with a stamp from Suite Sentiments and a Brights Enamel Shape.
I also used the Freshly Made Sketch#288 here.

Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Suite Sentiments
Papers: WW, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Delightful Daisy DSP
Inks: Night of Navy
Accessories: Stitched Shapes Framelits, 2 inch Circle punch, 1/4 inch Daffodil Delight double-stitched ribbon, Brights Enamel Shapes, Stampin dimensionals
