Best Wishes!

Happy Sunday!

I'm popping on quick to post this card during half-time of the Steelers vs Browns game!

I'm playing along with Lucy @ Lucy's Cards sketches this week, so here's day two!

Stamps: FSS digi (carnation), SU! (Baroque Motif)
sentiment: PennyBlack
Paper: SU! cs, black digi paper (?), 
white (BasicGrey)
Ink: Prisma pencils, SU! blush
Other: vintage seam binding, CM circle punches

Again, I'm NOT a sketch person!!! I saw this and was totally lost! lol  I know it's all in my head but I could not think what to put in the middle of this card.  I'm pretty happy with the way if finally turned out...definitely a challange for me though!

Ok, with all this thinking I'm totally spent, haha....back to football!  Go Steelers.......
Enjoy your day!
Be Blessed!

here are some challenge for now...
