A Sweet Thank You Card and CLP Sketch Challenge

Wow Wow Wow... did I have an entire week of being spoiled!!!  My goodness, I was treated like a Queen :D  My birthday was on the 6th, but day after day last week I was taken out to lunch or dinner, went to the movies and shopping, celebrated with a yummy ice cream cake, received gifts including chocolate, ate like a!  Yes indeed, it's definitely time to get back on track eating the right foods.  Too many sweets and the scale seems to be broken again!  I don't know what's wrong with it, but it keeps showing this number that is not my weight, or at least it shouldn't be hee hee...

In honor of my awesome family and friends who spoiled me rotten for my birthday, I present this card to you... THANK YOU soooo much.  I love you ALL!!!

This wonderful sketch is by Chelsea at CLP Sketch Challenge.  She has the best sketches around!  There's still time to join in the fun for this round which ends August 31.  Sketch Challenge #50 HERE.

The image is Little Susan by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD which is a part of the Sampler #7 Collection (4 stamp set).  She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with copics.  Susana has ShinHan markers which come in convenient bundles.  You can find ShinHan markers HERE.

A touch of Stardust Stickles and she's ready to go!  I know that Stickles (many colors) has been around for quite awhile, but it's one of my staples I MUST keep on hand!  The flowers on the image as well as the flowers I added are drenched in sparkle : )

I've used 2 double sided sheets from the 7gypsies Trousseau paper pad HERE and a panel of yellow cardstock which I embossed the *floral border (I believe from Cuttlebug) at the bottom.  To make the border show up more, I dry brushed Picket Fence Distress Stain over the top and added rhinestones in the flower centers.  New Metallic Distress Stains are HERE.

*Susana carries Couture Creations embossing folders (not the design I used) which have a 2 inch opening at the bend which allows for creating embossed strips without the 'border' like I have here (it's kinda covered up!)  You can find Couture Creations HERE.

Other Products Used:  Poppy Stamps Picket Fence, Memory Box Classic Tags (trimmed to fit), PaperTrey Tiny Tags (flower) with Tiny Tags sentiment, Scrapper's Floss, I think the flowers are 'old' Prima I've had for quite awhile...

Hi Lori,
Happy belated birthday to you. Sounds like you had a blast! Our scales must be from the same manufacturer because oddly mine reads incorrectly too!!! ;)
Your card is just adorable...I love the mounted image over the fence post and the triple thank you tags are a great idea.

Thank you so much for taking the time to link up your talent and creative ideas with us at Make It Monday!
Happy Crafting...
