My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club #52

Hi.  I'm posting a card photo of the Sketch Challenge for My Favorite Things.  Every Wednesday they present a "card outline" of design elements that can be put together any way you want.  It's fun because you are required to follow a basic design but are free to use whatever papers and stamps you desire.  Those who follow the rules are judged and a prize is awarded.  Just click HERE to see what's in store for 2012!  
I made this card for my very special best friend.  The stamp is from MFT's set, Jolinne-Best Friends.  I'm just learning to color with Copic markers but I think it looks nice.  The papers are from Echo Park's Victoria Garden collection.  I started off with a Regal Rose piece of cardstock from Stampin' Up!.  The ribbon is also from SU, Kiwi Kiss. 

Every friend has to have some bling, thus the MFT crystal adornments.  They were just the right touch of bright color.  The ready-made flowers is from Recollections.  One of their mulberry paper flowers.  I thought it went with the paper nicely.  

So, that's my card for today.  Check out all the entries for the sketch challenge at the Splitcoasters Gallery!  There are some VERY creative people out there.  Thanks for looking. 

Winter Getaway

Palm trees, warm weather, sunset at the beach.  This is what I've been enjoying the last few weeks.  My husband and I are celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary and took a trip to sunny Florida.  It was so relaxing and peaceful.  

I'll only bore you with a couple of photos but you get the idea.  Come back tomorrow when I'll post my entry for a card sketch.  See you then!
