My own little corner to create pretties among a house full of little men

Can you believe it is Thursday and I have yet another thing to post today. Four days in a row, that must be a record for me, right? The whole digi relay at The Greeting Farm was so much fun and I am saddened that they ended it so soon but understand their reasoning. I do have another digital image to create with, Prince Ian. I hope to get something done for that tonight since I have no idea what is going to be going on with me tomorrow. I would love to see the baby but I am praying that the baby is head down and I will be sent home with an appointment for next week. If you believe in the power of prayer I would appreciate it if you would include the baby and I in yours. If you don't believe in the power of prayer than I would appreciate it if you would send us some good vibes tomorrow.
This morning I was doing my usual blog hopping on everyone's blog that I love and saw what Lorie created for a challenge. She inspired me to do something wonderful. I planned on CASEing her card exactly as she had done but ended up with this instead.
I started with some Kraft paper just as she had. Then I wanted to use some more of my Making Memories vintage findings paper. I put that strip on top of some Enchanted Evening cardstock from PTI that I punched with a border punch. It doesn't have a name on it so I have no idea which company it is from. From there I wanted to use some faux stitching that I have had forever because I love the look of stitching. I couldn't leave it at that so I added the ribbon. I love the color paired with the enchanted evening. The rest is just stuff I had in my stash. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the cardbase with colorbox chalk ink in dark brown. It can be used as a thank you card or a birthday card. I just absolutely LOVE it. I am so excited about this one.
