Yesterday I started working on this amazing sketch. I found it at The Pink Elephant Challenge. This week it was a sketch challenge right up my alley. Immediately I had some inspiration for this sketch. Now that I have my craft room mostly organized...I needed to get to work. Well you are probably thinking that why didn't I have this up yesterday....well my hubby came in while I was working and asked me if I wanted to go shopping. Ladies he isn't a shopper, so when he says "do you want to go shopping" I already have my purse and am running out the door, you know before he loses the urge to leave the house...LOL. It was a wonderful day and we found some really nice stuff for the house. We had a lot of work to do last night.

Today has been a day full of rearranging furniture. While we are taking a break I finished up my card.

So here is my take on this challenge:

I thought the view of this card showed the flowers color more.
Stamps: Treasure Life- Close to My Heart
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Marigold Morning, Tempting Turquiose, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White.
Ink: Chocolate Chip and Markers (SU)
Accessories: Spots & Dots, Swiss Dots Folders (Cuttlebug), chocolate chip ribbon, pearls, ticket punch (SU), edging punch (SU), dimensionals.

This card was inspired by all of the family and friends I am grateful to have in my life. Thanks also to everyone who keeps popping in. Wishing you a wonderful day.

Til next time - enjoy life.
