I thought of you today

and smiled!

This card is being entered in the Freshly Made Sketches #21 A sketch from Lesley (Seeing Double).  See the inspiration sketch below,  and also check the blog for other wonderful creations.

To make this card: 

A2 cardstock base in a cream color with black, cream and tan pattern paper from Close to My Heart.

I used the <Design1> from Elegant Edges cartridges to make my label found on page 27.  I used the oblong frame and shadow cut at 3"

To complete this card:

Using the sketch as my inspiration, I layered my paper as shown in my card photo.  I stamped the "I thought of you today" message inside the label, and then stamped "and smiled" in the bottom right corner (stamps from CTMH).  I cut three flowers out of the pattern paper I used, curled the edges and layered them together.  The last I wanted to add was a pop of RED using brads and twine.
