groovy thank you

Did you all have a good weekend? We were busy! 2 kid birthday parties and a baby shower for my sister-in-law. I'm exhausted! But I did find time to whip out a card, naturally - ha! This card uses Weekend Sketch Challenge #74 and my fellow Baker's Dozen gal, Charmaine, is hosting the challenge this week. Pop on over to check out the sketch and all the other entries. I still have some very retired Afternoon Tea paper and had intended to make a Mother's Day card, but none of my sentiments worked with the oval die cuts I have - it was going to be GINORMOUS and take over the card. So I opted for plan B and used an oval from my aged copper hardware stash. I love this sketch and like the way the card turned out - so full of spring!

Have a great day!

recipe -
stamps: short & sweet
ink: groovy guava
paper: chocolate chip, stampers select white (papertrey, ink) cardstock, afternoon tea dsp
accessories: aged copper hodgepodge hardware, 5/16" brads, groovy guava double stitched grosgrain ribbon, large oval punch, stampin' dimensionals
