Have your bodies adjusted to the end of Daylight Savings Time yet? Mine hasn't and that's a good thing. Now I'm awake by 6:30 and able to get some exercise in before the grandkids get here at 7:45. Now, if I could only go to bed before Midnight!!!
My card today was inspired by a card at The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge Blog. They have a beautiful sketch to work with this week so why not hop on over there and play along. You have until next Friday evening.
Did you ever notice how you start out with such pretty papers and then end up covering it up. That's what happened to me on this card. So, I made the small strip smaller then on the sketch so you could see more of the pretty flowers underneath. I was almost tempted to eliminate it all together.
The Digi Image I used is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and is called "Winter Basket". I love Digi Stamps because you can make them any size you need. It was printed then colored with Copic Markers.
The Ribbon is some old Hostess rewards ribbon from Close to my Heart.
The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
