With all our love ... an any-day card

Happy Wednesday! The weekend is almost here "Yay"! The week is moving along nicely, for a change. The weather...well, it's freezing cold. I haven't seen the sun all day, and if we're to believe the weatherman weather person, tomorrow will be no different. Exciting days ahead, folks!

My card today is an Any-day card. I chose neutral colours so that it can be adapted depending on the occasion. Very likely it will end up being a birthday card!  It's good to have a few of these in our stash. The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches #181 and I gave it a 180º turn. Colours and ideas of embellishments came for  The Shabby Tea Room #149 "Antique Roses"and include Roses and Ribbon. I'm also taking my card to Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge #241 "Ribbon".

Here's my card:

The patterned paper is from First Edition "Isabelle" 8x8 pad.

I stamped the sentiment on the inside and made a window  in the front.

Top half with mulberry roses and...

... bottom half with 2 sheer ribbons: the broader on in aqua and the thinner one in kraft-ish.

The sentiment is by WMS Fancy Phrases stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.

That's all form me today. I hope you're having a productive day, speaking of which, I'm off to bed in a bit. Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you on Friday for a PolkaDoodles challenge. Until then, take care and stay warm!
