Sketch Saturday #353

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by

I absolutely loved Cathy's sketch this week and I intend to use it again in a more straightforward interpretation on one of the occasions when there are 5 weeks in a month and we get to choose a sketch.  But for now, I saw the sketch and thought 'wardrobe in a room with a chair rail' - what we, in England, call a dado rail.  See what I mean?  

My wardrobe was one of my very early stamp purchases - at least 5 years ago.  It's by Dimension Fourth Ltd and this was it's first trip outside of the packaging! My Hero Arts for Sizzix chandelier represents the stars in the sketch.  As usual, I had a brain burp and placed it on the opposite side.  I did feel the need to add two extra horizontals at the bottom for a baseboard (skirting) and carpet and although my card is very interpretive - I do still see this sketch and I hope you can too. My papers are Glitz "Sunshine in my Soul".  The hanger is Tim Holtz and my dress is a Stampin Up die from "All Dressed Up" covered in fabric and rickrack with the bodice stamped from another SU set.  The sentiment is also from SU All Dressed Up.
We'd be delighted if you would share some love with all of the Saturdays and then why not scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with us.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:  
Crafty Creations - Chevrons or stripes
Whimsy - Use a die cut (my dress)
Make My Monday - A scenic card (mine just happens to be an indoor scene)
Papertake Weekly - Happy Anything
