Sketch inspired

If a sketch is very complicated, I generally won't even give it a try, but if it is a simple sketch, it really can get me going.  Case in point - this sketch from Blessings Ink:
I thought this was going to be a very CAS card, until I decided what I wanted to place in those 4 panels - 3 stamps and a postmark:
Once I had that whole envelope idea going, I pretty much lost control and started throwing things on this card like crazy.  I have a weird selection of stuff piled on my desk; I didn't have to dig long to find enough ephemera to finish this card.  All the stamps are from the "come fly with me" set by a•muse studio, the vintage photo is downloaded from The Sum of All Crafts, the tickets are from Staples (I got them during a raffle, but they say Staples on them), the pink petals are off a silk hydrangea branch, and that manila panel is from that folder I've been chopping up all month.  If you don't count the ephemera there is really only two layers!
