\What do you get when you cross Roxie, Sharon and Julia??

Well, you get an awesome card!!
I decided to play with Roxie's sketch challenge #162 tonight. But I also wanted to play along with Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge #20 - Pretties. Then I realized that the card also fit with Julia's Ways To Use It Challene 141!
So, what's a girl to do but combine the three!
Roxie's challenge is pretty straight forward...see the sketch, that's it!! :-) If you haven't participated in a sketch challenge, you really should. They are a ton of fun!!
Julia's challenge asked us to use stitching on our card. I love to pull out my sewing maching and put some stitching on a card. It makes the card feel more soft and warm...just my opinion!! I knew that the stitching would go great with the fabric I was planning to use!!
For Sharon's challenge, she asked us to pull out our pretties and use them on a card. See that fabric...that's my pretty!! I've had it for almost a year now...saw it in a scrapbooking store and loved it instantly but have never gotten around to using it (it was just too pretty and I'm into hoarding the pretty stuff). I also have some other pretties on here too. The flower is a vanilla Bazzill Basics flower...only use them on very special cards!! And see that hat pin, just found those in a craft store in Calgary!! My first time trying such elegance on a card!! And, see all the designer paper...well, that is K&Company stuff!! I love their paper, truely elegant and beautiful! I have a hard time using it (the hoarding thing again) but I made myself pull it out and use it!!
Thanks ladies for all the inspiration!!

Definitely pretty! The fabric is gorgeous and the sentiment is perfect. Since I love combining challenges, I am SO impressed that you were able to get four on one card -- way to go!
