A Quick Card

I woke up at 5:00 a.m. and got out of bed shortly thereafter. I decided to make a card since I didn't get any time to last night. Unfortunately, there was a pretty bad accident on the road that I travel back and forth to work. There were two helicopters and I stopped counting ambulances at 4, as well as a Rescue Squad truck. BAD! I think that three were killed in a head on collision. I have said a prayer or two for the families.
I used a sketch for this card from SCS, I remembered to write down which one, but I left it at home *duh!* The image is SU! Petals and Paisley; I colored it with watercolor markers. I punched it out and then cut a mat from turquoise cardstock. I layered a scallop circle in for fun. I covered the card base with PP and then cut a mat out of SU! Whisper White. I tied the ribbon and then punched holes with the CAD for the brads. Super quick and easy. I think I might like this one the best. This sketch is great and really versatile.

Here is a picture of the blog candy that I won from Marie. She has a great blog, stop by and take a look. I got to choose items from the SU! catty and I have been wanting to get the scallop circle punch! The StazOn will be great since I use StazOn ink alot. Thanks Marie! Please be sure to check out her site, you'll be inspired. Can't wait to use this stuff.

We're having another hazy day. Cool in the morning, but then in the 90's in the afternoon. It doesn't even start cooling down until after 9:00 p.m. Can't wait for the 70's all day.

Sweet! You got to pick your own blog candy. That's awesome. And I love how you used the scalloped circle punch here, peaking out from behind that flower.
