My Apology

This weekend, is a welcome sight.  The mere thought of sleeping past 5am, and schlepping around my house in my pjs, drinking coffee with no urgency to leave, is intoxicating!  So, that is my plan this morning; drinking hot coffee, sitting in my rocking chair, looking out the window across my back deck.  It started raining yesterday, and we have a forecast for more rain today.  So, I'm going to welcome the moisture in spirit, and stay warm and dry inside.  Later today, Sasha, will be traveling with us into town for a vet appt.  She will have her stitches removed and her knees will be checked.  
I hope that you have a wonderful weekend, and get a chance to do something 'good' for your soul: relax and craft!  And, I have a challenge for you to join!  Meihsia Liu, @ Our Creative Corner, has a wonderful sketch challenge for you to try.  This sketch is just fabulous to work with!  Here is the sketch:

Don't forget, there is a requirement of including a ribbon bow on your project.  Here is my card:

I purchased these beautiful pattern papers a few months ago.  You know how that is.  You are shopping and see some pretty pattern paper, and even though there aren't any immediate plans to use them, you purchase them anyways.  And that is how I acquired these pattern papers.  
The pattern papers come from a collection called Pretty in Pink by Glitz.  (The pink rose paper, the music sheet paper, the pink stripe paper, and the pink drawing paper.)  I used a die called Tasteful Trim by Stampin' Up! to create the large scallop trim on both the First Edition DSP and the Pink Stripe paper.  The crochet trim comes from Spare Parts.   The sentiment tag was created with the flourish from the Creative Elements stamp set and one of the sentiments from the In A Word stamp set.  I used foam tape to adhere the circle to the card front.  The ribbon bow was created with rose red Seam Binding. I used a random brad to connect the multi-loop bow to the card front.  I used a hot glue gun to adhere the resin flower to the brad, by Prima.  The paper blossom and the resin frame are also from Prima.  The buttons are from Paper Trey Ink.  The metal rim butterfly 'button' is from K & Co.
Thank you for stopping by.  I hope that you have found some inspiration and interest to play along with us @ Our Creative Corner.

First of all, thanks for popping by my blog and leaving such kind comments! Much appreciated :)
I adore the idea of sipping coffee & rocking while taking in the view, but here in PA the sun finally made an appearance after a dreary 2 weeks, so I'm enjoying laundry hung outside and fresh air for a change!
Your card is SO so pretty with that little framed image and gorgeous paper! I love all the little button and flower accents, but that sentiment is the best! Very nice card!!
