Thank You - A Very Late Challenge Entry

I intended to submit this card for the last Everything But the Kitchen Sink Challenge, which was a sketch challenge based on Kelly Marie's headboard. I thought this design for the Silhouette looked a lot like her headboard. This card is a 4.25" square. The chocolate chip design is elevated on foam tape. The card is very basic. A sentiment and a button finish it off.

Life's been busier than usual. My son had a nasty intestinal virus for almost a week. I was "home schooling" for 3 days; not easy. Helping at school was also crazy busy. We were getting ready for a visit from a team that could recommend us for a California Distinguished School Award. We got their recommendation, so yay!

As always, thanks for the lovely comments and have a good one!

Card Ingredients
Stamps: Butterfly Dreams (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: white (Papertrey Ink), Chocolate Chip (SU!)
Ink: Chocolate Chip (SU!)
Tools: Silhouette with design, 3/4" square punch
Other: button (Making Memories), linen thread (SU!), foam tape (3M)

WOW!!!! What a stunning card Anthonette!!! Seriously - you always just blow me away!!! LOVE that design and the green accent and the font and everything in between! I hope your son is feeling better and that you are getting lots of rest - its so hard when they are so little and are not feeling well.... heck- its hard for anyone to go through - and I hope your little wee man is doing well!!! I never had a chance to tell you HOW much I just was on cloud 9 to meet you - you are SUCH a sweetheart and I SO miss YOU!!!!!!! Can't wait to see you soon (wouldn't that be fun if our boys could have a playdate while we had a stamping playdate!!! ) if you only lived closer! Sending you loads of love and hugs sweet Anthonette!!! I just adore YOU!

Sankari :))))))
