Friday Sketchers ~ Delight in Everything....

Bea has given us a gorgeous sketch over at Friday Sketchers to follow! I just had to make a card ~ even though I should have taken a nap! (I have to be to work at 3am)
I wanted to use this cute image as well but when I finished I realized I could not put the flower where it is "supposed" to be so I put it in the empty spot on my main image. For the sentiment I stamped in on a sheet of transparency and used glue dots to hold it on. The flower was made with my cuttlebug, leaves are from a MS punch. This card is nothing like what I seen in my head!! (LOL) I was going to try the color challenge of red and green over at Color Create but then I just couldn't do it!! I had to change it and put in a bigger piece of pink! (LOL) It just makes me think of Christmas!

Paper: K & Co. ~ Wild Raspberry
Inks: Distress Inks and twinkling h20's
Accessories: brads ~ Heidi Grace, pink gems ~ StampingBella

Well thanks for stopping by today and thanks for all your lovely comments on my St. Pat's card! I think it is funny ~ the ones I think will bomb always get the most comments! (LOL) Shows what kind of taste I have!! Anyways have a great week-end!
