Thank You!

I just want to thank my readers for checking in on me even while I'm away. I had a great visit with my hubby in DC for the weekend and now I'm home again. I'm just getting some stuff done before I can pick up my puppy up from the vet where he was boarded for the weekend. One thing I wanted to do while I didn't have a dog laying his head on my keyboard was to get a post up. This is a card I made for the sketch challenge two weeks ago. Side note: I almost did every challenge on SCS that week! I also decided to break out the pastels which I haven't used in forever! I started with a Creamy Caramel base. I did a dry run of my layers to determine where I needed to adhere my Ruby Red layer to my Old Olive layer. I adhered the two together, then added a piece of Old Olive Polytwill ribbon and adhered it to my cardbase. I stamped my flower from Heartfelt Thanks in Versamark on Whisper White and added Ruby Red and Olive Olive with my Stampin' Pastels. I stamped my sentiment from Short & Sweet in Ruby Red. I slid it under my ribbon and glued it down.
