Just a Note

Hi everyone, so happy to share this card with you today using a *new to me* sketch challenge by Cardabilities and here's the lovely sketch I used. The challenge ends in a few hours and it seems this is the new norm for me, always coming in under the wire. Ugh!! This sketch was so different from most I've seen and it just so happens that one of the dp's in the Rosy collection by MME was perfect for the main paper image. It made my day rosy, lol! I used a sentiment from the new TE Vintage Dreamer stamp set and the Double Moroccan Lace border punch adds the scallop element with a touch of sophistication. 

I also plan to enter this in the Cas-ual Fridays CFC43 challenge, For Sentimental Reasons, which focuses on the sentiment. This card may look fussy but the dp's did most of the work making this a very CAS card to create. I did pop the "just a note" sentiment up on 3D foam squares so it would stand out more.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope all of you are having a crafty good time wherever you are!

What an amazing arrangement on this card. The flowers, sentiment and image look really really nice like that! All taking center stage and surrounded by the most wonderful colors and textures. This is an exquisite "just a note" card.

Hugs to you and hope everything is going well in your part of the world.

Beautiful! That punch couldn't be more perfect for this card! The flourish behind the flower is such a gorgeous finishing touch!
I haven't even completed a challenge lately, so don't feel too bad!
