Thanks a bunch!

Hello, dear friends. Can you believe it's Wednesday already?! In a couple of days the week will be over. Not that I'm complaining at the prospect of having to struggle through another relaxing weekend end, but really, aren't things moving a tad too fast? The past few days have been pretty intense: funeral, football and a birth. I'm hoping for a humdinger of a weekend since my SIL has flown in for a short break, and that usually means unbridled gluttony. Things aren't looking so good for my MIL who is already in a terrible fluster planning what sounds like a state banquet.  I'm going to lie low, and hide under my craft table until the coast is clear or until I'm exposed! In the meantime, I made this dinky little card for... well, I don't know who yet, but there's always someone I need to thank... my MIL being the most likely candidate ;-)  The sketch is from Retro Sketches #12 and for the colours I turned to ColorQ #138.

My card base is 4.5" square. The papers are from Papermania's Capsule Collection "Sunshine" & "Aqua" by Tina Higgins. 

I bought those paper roses quite a while back by mistake. White roses with a pale brownish centre - what was I thinking? But hey, they seem perfect for the ColorQ challenge. Did I say brown centre? I mean crumb cake, of course.

The sentiment is from WMS Compact Sentiments set, stamp directly onto the patterned paper with Memento Tuxedo Black.

I embossed the red  panel with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots folder, added  a couple of eyelets and crumb cake-y satin bow.  And for reasons unbeknownst to me, I sprinkled some blue glittery stuff over the flowers. The mystery of me... 

My inside....
I'm also linking this card over at Paper Pretties #207 where they are playing with all things Bright and Bold. Thanks for dropping by and spending some time with me. I'm going to crawl out of hiding and call my MIL. She might need some help with that state banquet!
