World card making day

Today is World Card Making Day. I wonder if Hallmark is celebrating?!? Ha, ha, ha!

I chose to make a card using this sketch from Sophisticat Challenge Blog. The sketch was provided by none other than the Glitterbabe herself, Stef. Earlier this week I made a fan fold flower medallion so when I saw the sketch, I knew it would be perfect for the flower.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

This one's for you Stef!

I added some glitter to the edge of the flower medallion but it doesn't show up all that well in the picture. I used the cuttlebug birds and swirls embossing folder on the green card stock using my cuttlebug. I also cut and embossed the tulip pendant from Spellbinders. The sentiment is from Clear Dollar stamps and was stamped using SU's Razzleberry Ink which was a gift from Stef way back when I won her blog candy.

Stef, I know you will be peeking in and I hope you like my card. It was made with you in mind.

I have a wicked head cold that has really knocked me for a loop and I stayed home from work the last 4 days. Just when I think I am feeling better, I start feeling lousy again. I hope I will be able to return to work on Monday.

Thanks for popping in!
