Our Craft Lounge Sketch Challenge #8

I created this card for the Friday Sketch Challenge over at Our Craft Lounge. I'll keep it short and sweet today as I have a nasty flu bug and just pretty much dragged myself out of bed to do a quick post. The focal point of the card is the sentiment, which is from the Say it Big Clear Stamp set. You can find out where you can purchase this set by visiting Our Craft Lounge.

I've had these pre made cards kicking around my cupboard forever! They're from We R Memory Keepers Boho Chic Collection. I Cut up two or three cards to form the various layers in this card. I cut the sentiment out with my scalloped rectangle Nestie and sponged in with Rust Coloured Ink. The Ribbon was a coordinating ribbon for the Collection and the flowers are3 made with my new Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Die. This card was made for my sweetheart...who'sBirthday was yesterday. Thank goodness I managed to get through the festivities before the flu bug hit, but I sure hope that I didn't make anyone else sick. Jon had been ill from Friday-Sunday and I was almost positive that I had managed to keep myself from cathing it.............NOT~
So if you'd like to play along with the OCL sketch, here are the deets (copied from the Lounge Blog)
