One Kind Sketch

Well, we had our first prenatal class last night! We were the only girl/girl team, which was a little awkward, but fine. The beginning of the class started with a game where they had different things used in childbirth laid out on the table and you had to write down what you thought they were. Well, we all stunk at it, but Mary and I knew more than everyone else. Unfortunately, due to the fact that our mom is a nurse, Mary works for the hospital, and I spent a ton of time on the OB ward with my old boss(the one I was a nanny for was an OB), we were disqualified!! I tried not to throw too big a stink, but really, how unfair!! LOL!! Anyway, on the way home I got to drive through another storm, nothing compared to the one in Arkansas, but a storm none the less. Trust me when I say I am seriously thinking about not driving anymore! As I saw the lightning crash around me all I could think to myself was- man, you’re an idiot!! LOL
Enough blabber, on to my card!! This card is for the sketch challengeover on SCS. It was guest hosted this week by Amy, and she came up with a terrific sketch. Since I saw it last night before I went to be, I got to dream about it all night long , and still had nothing! My One Of A Kind set that I just had to have, has been terribly neglected since I got it, so I decide to give it a go! I stamped the flower three times and cut it out in layers after water coloring it with my markers and aqua painter. I then punched out a piece of Berry Bliss DSP and made my build a brad and stuck it through the whole thing. I heavily sponged the edges on this card, and then in a last ditch effort to make this the heaviest card ever made, I threw a ton of hardware on it!! You know how I love to embellish!! This is just a warning, but hold on tight, I have at least two more posts today!! YAYY!! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a great day!!
