Another Sketch, Another Thank You

I checked into Freshly Made Sketches this morning for the new sketch for the week... another great sketch, by the way :). I need several thank you cards this week, so I used the sketch for the first one of the day. Here's the sketch...
And here's my card...
I also used a color challenge from SCS for this week. The colors to use are Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, and Wild Wasabi, with some heat embossing. My sentiment is heat embossed in pastel pink embossing powder, but it didn't photograph too well :(. If you can't read the sentiment, it says, "heartfelt thanks." I added a little Bashful Blue to ink up the clouds and a tiny Marina Mist butterfly. 

For the inside, I matted Very Vanilla on Wild Wasabi and added another little Marina Mist butterfly. Not too fancy, but plenty of room for writing my thank you note :). 

We  have a little down time between Meets for a while, so I'm hoping to spend a bit more time in my stamping room. I have some new stamp sets that I haven't even inked yet and a book full of sketches from my favorite sketch blogs, so I have plenty to keep me busy! Have a wonderful day today and thanks for stopping by!!

Love it, Love it, Love it! It's all adorable. I love your fence. I just got me a Tim Holtz fence die (I know, more contraband) so I may have to case your card.

Thanks for sharing,

I love everything about this card! The fence is so creative, I love the textures, the sponging of the sky and clouds is PERFECT (love the pink in it), the vines and flowers are so pretty. Truly FANTASTIC job with the sketch. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
