Pretty Melon Blossoms!

Well, long time no blog:) I'm neck deep in work these days so it doesn't leave much time for crafting! We have our big hospital inspection next week (the one that accredits the clinic, if you are in the medical field, you feel my pain!) so we have been super busy at work making sure we're ready! I think we'll do fine, but it's still nerve wracking, I HATE inspections!
Okay, well I had to get crafty for a bit tonite, I miss it if I have to skip a day or two! My day just doesn't seem complete until I get a card made, ykwim?
Betty asked me to make a sample for today's Color Challenge on SCS and I happily accepted! Only problem: I miscalculated the time difference by 12 hours so I wasn't ready when the challenge went up, lmbo! I'm such a stooge sometimes! You'd think after living here for the past 2 years I'd be good at the time differences, but I'm really not. So, I'm terribly sorry to Betty that I wasn't ready when I said I would be! Maybe she'll give me another chance next week;)
I really LOVE the colors she chose this week! With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I'm lovin pink! The color challenge this week is Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, and Blush Blossom! Isn't that a gorgeous combo? The dessert (yes please!) is HEARTS! AND, if you want to add red to your card, it can ONLY be in the form of a heart! Fun stuff:)
My card base is Pretty in Pink cardstock, stamped with a background stamp from Background Basics: Flower Power by PTI! I stamped it in Pretty in Pink so it would leave just the slightest bit of a pattern. Next, I added my Blush Blossom piece, and layered some hearts on top! The sentiment stamp is by Verve, it's the "Be Mine Plain Jane, "totally fun stamp with a totally fun font! I also added a Hambly sheer frame, buttons, twill tape, a fun crystal pin, and a sticker from Heart Warming Vintage by Crafty Secrets!
I'm lovin' the shabby-ness of this card, SO much:)
I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch for the layout this week! She always has the FUNNEST sketches, I love them:)

Well thanks for popping by today, it makes my day when you stop by and visit:) See ya tomorrow with a sketch card {hopefully!}
