April SFYTT card

Well, here we are a month later and I'm doing the same thing - posting my sketch challenge card at the very last possible minute. I've been so busy rehearsing a show on top of the normal stuff that I just never sat down and stamped. You should have seen me scrambling this morning trying to get the card finished and photographed before I had to leave for a matinee performance, not to mention getting my kids where they needed to be. Whew!! I really need to plan ahead a bit better for these things.

Obviously, I took a few liberties with the sketch and replaced the center square with a layered flower. It's a bit bulky for mailing, of course, but the card is just bursting with cheery springiness. (is that even a word? lol) Well, I am one tired chick after two back-to-back performances today, so I'll just leave you with the card ingredients. Oh, the flower-stamped panel is sponged with the Vintage Cream ink in case that isn't obvious at first glance.
