Embellish and 2S4Y Challenges!

Good evening readers!  Tonight I have a quick post that I created for two of my favorite challenges: the Embellish Color Challenge and 2 Sketches 4 You's weekly sketch challenge.
I'm also entering this card in the Tuesday Throwdown #22: Anything Goes challenge!  =)  
Keeping these things in mind, heres the card that I came up with:

One of my coworker's recently had a baby girl, and the doctors told them she was going to have a lot of medical problems from certain physical symptoms she was exhibiting.  It turns out, after many MANY tests and running the emotions of both of the parents to the bone, that she is TOTALLY HEALTHY!  This was such a blessing, and we are all thrilled that she is healthy!  =)  I know they'll enjoy this card!

Embellish's challenge was to use felt along with their theme colors.  I went for a very "homespun" look (this seems to be my new trend as of late), and used lots of twine.  The base flower is a stamp that I cut out... and who could resist those adorable leaf pins?  Overall, this isn't my favorite card, but there are some elements on it that I REALLY love!  =)

 Well, thanks for stopping by!  Happy weekend everyone!
