CQC #149, CFC #65 & RS #24 ~ Just for You!

Will someone please explain our weather to me. Yesterday it was only 63 and rainy...in the middle of August...63! It was 90 in April ~ isn't this supposed to be the other way around!!??!! Days like that call for card making and cookie baking! I have a card I made for the ColourQ and CAS-ual Fridays. Then I checked into my blog and discovered a new sketch over at Retro Sketches. I looked at my card again and thought hmmm...this might just squeak by there too, it's close, not exact, but what the heck! Take a peek and let me know what you think.

This is pretty self explanatory but here's what I used. My white card base is a square 4"x 4" with a Summer Starfruit panel on top of that. I die cut PTI limitless layers and stamped the white circle with an Endless Creations sentiment using leaf green ink. I think it's a great match for the Gumball Green. The scalloped circle is cut from Midnight Muse. My pretty flourish is by DeNami ~ love it! A fabulous chipboard button, gems for some shine and I'll enter this into all three challenges.

My hubby saw this and said he thinks it's one of the prettiest cards I've ever made!!! Swoon...sure love my guy ~ Lisa
