My card for Feeling Sketchy No 16

I have just finished making my card for Feeling Sketch No 16 at

and this was the sketch to work to:
I put a piece of core'dinations card stock through my cuttlebug and then sanded it to make the flowers show up more, added Stampin Up paper and ribbon.  Stampavie stamp Mo Manning "End of Summer".  Stamping Up sentiment.  butterfly brad and flower diamontes.
It has taken me ages just to make one card.   I spent 1 & 1/2 hours in the dentist chair this morning, and my mouth is very sore.  It is getting worse now the anisthetic is wearing off.

"Ditto" to Annmaree's comment on the colour combo...Love that image and can so imagine why it's part of your collection Margaret. The sentiment matches the image perfectly too. Hugs Von xx
