Sketchy Saturday

Happy Saturday!  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend planned.  I have a busy day today, and I'm hoping for a very quiet Mother's Day tomorrow.  ;)  Here is the sketch Carol drew for today's Sketch Challenge over on the UDI blog.  We were to make it for mom or someone special, but since I already made my mom and mom-in-law's cards, I made this one a thank you note. 

The card base is Tempting Turquoise with a layer of Chocolate Chip and another of Whisper White.  The Whisper White layer was stamped with Itty Bitty Backgrounds in Tempting Turquoise and Chocolate Chip.  The sentiment is from Thank You Kindly.  The monogram is from Lovely Letters.  the Pretties Kit flower was covered with 2-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds.  I sponged the edges of all the white layers with Tempting Turquoise.  A strip of 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon is the finishing touch. 

Let me know what you think of today's card, and then skip on over to Jeannette's blog to see what she has for you today.  If any of the links are missing or broken, you can head on over to the UDI blog for links to all the team members.

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Thank You Kindly, Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Lovely Letters.  Ink- Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise.  Paper- Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White.  Accessories-  Pretties Kit, Wide Oval punch, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle punches, Scallop Circle punch, 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain, 2-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds, sponge dauber.

Thanks for visiting!  Happy Mother's Day!
