Saturday Sketch Challenge 193

Good Evening Friends!

Boy has it been a CRAZY week here! My little one was in the hospital for an overnight with pneumonia on Wednesday. I didn't sleep and am still walking around half asleep..

I have a craft fair in the morning and a "party" tomorrow night that I'm on the hook for 72 favors that are started, but not complete and I just want to go to bed! :D

I did take a few minutes out to put together this quick card.. that's right, it was REALLY quick... but I've had this card in my head all week! My friends Chris and Jo were here on Sunday, and Chris is working on a scrapbook for her daughter's wedding.. The poppy gerber dasies were in all the pictures, and this week, she ordered a bunch of coordinating products to do the album.. That's where I got the colors.. At the craft fair tomorrow, i'll be selling some of these cool vases and matching cards.. they are really fun!

So how about measurements..
Base: 5 1/4" x 10 1/2", scored and folded in half at 5 1/4"
Layer 2: 4 3/4" Square poppy parade cardstock
Layer 3: 4 5/8" Square Whisper White
Layer 4: 3 1/4" Square Poppy Cardstock
Layer 5: 3 1/8" Whisper white..

For the pearls in the top left hand corner... I colored them with a sharpie then applied them to my card.

I wish I had more to share in the way of details tonight, but my brain is not behaving! :D

Wishing you health and happiness this week.. I hope you have a chance to play along with Stamping 411 this week. I'll be looking to see what you did with this sketch!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I too have a little one who is very sick, I am taking him to the Dr. today. I hope your little angel is feeling better. I love your flower card and with that matching vase, what a wonderful gift idea. I don't have this die yet but will be ordering it with my next order. Great card:)
