I thought of you today

Hello my friends, I hope you are having a great day. I am pretty much enjoying summer time. Today we are hitting 102 F!! It is hot here. This morning I decided to mow the lawn and I ended up like a tomato, LOL. During my mowing adventure (the pushing/walking mower) I saw something bouncing around, I got curious and I found out it was a mouse, yikes!!! I am super scared of mice, yeap, may sound funny, but I don't like those critters. I let him ran away and I finished my job. Now, my back yard looks much better, :) :) We have weeds to pull, but any other day, too hot to work outside.
Anyway, today I have a shiny card for you. I played the sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. I decided to go Monochromatic, I think my card turned out really pretty. I used Natural CS (SU) and stamped the images using White Craft Ink and then applied Gold Embossing powder. After that I cut it in 4 squares and sewed them onto another piece of Naturals CS. I attached some Green Lime Ribbon. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Brown Ink.

Card Recipe:
Card Stock: Naturals (SU).
Cookie Plate: Botanical.
Ink: White Craft. Basic Brown. Pistachio and Gold ( sponging)
Embellishments: Green Lime Satin Ribbon (Offray), Green Rhinestones (Kaiser Crafts)
