Happy Friday to you!  This has been an interesting week, to say the least.  I hope all of you are well.  So, on Fridays, its blog hop day!  The talented Deb C. over @ Sketch Frenzy Friday, has a wonderful sketch for you to try.   So, if you are here from another blog, please take a moment to browse, you just might see something that delights you. 
Here is Deb's sketch:

When I first saw this sketch, I was thinking of different stamp sets that I have that have a vertical image.  But, I kinda struggled with this one.  Maybe I was over thinking it, or it might be that I don't feel well.  I started feeling sick on Tuesday, and it has been down hill since.  If I had to guess, its a stomach flu, only from what's been going on.  so, that's fun.
Anyways, on with my card:

Ok, so the first thing, I turned the sketch on its side.  Second, I don't have a sentiment 'tag' or 'label'.  But, I did like the vertical line, so I dragged my mini clothes pin across my craft white ink pad.  I added a train ticket piece from the Attic Boutique Side Notes collection.  I stamped the 'label' from Everything Eleanor. I wrapped a scrap piece of Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon to help ground the pink, and added a small butterfly to help convey a feminine feeling.  
Now, please continue on with this blog hop, and see what Tammy F. has created.
Have a great weekend, and craft something beautiful!

Great card. It tells a story. Very feminine and it feels like a memory from traveling.
