Good morning.  I have a real quick post for you today as I am running late.  My card today was made using the sketch from this weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge, with just a little variation- no sentiment on my card. My image comes from The Stamping Boutique- isn't she the cutest!!
And what about this ribbon! I just love the ribbon.  I mentioned in an earlier post I am using my old papers and came across these.  They are from Daisy D's and I love them. I sewed and then gave the edges just a little extra distressing.  My red gardenia is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Challenges:
Stamp With Fun: Fairy Tales
Stamping Boutique: their 1st challenge and of course my image is from them

Ok I am off....and late.
