Have a WONDERFUL Day!!!

I hope that all of you are having a wonderful day!  I know I'm having a pretty wonderful day!  As a matter of fact, I am feeling better and have LOTS of fun lined up for this weekend with friends and family!  I hope you have a similarly great weekend!

Anyhow, I just love LOVE Tiffany Johnson's Sketchy Sundays!!!  I've only been able to do a few of them, but I really REALLY love this week's sketch!  I also recently stumbled upon the CR84FN color challenge too, so I combined the two for this card:
I'm mostly pleased with how this card turned out!  I used a distressing technique on the chipboard for the sentiment, and I definitely need some work there!  Speaking of the chipboard, that's the new coaster board from PTI!  It diecuts, stamps, and distresses really well!  Here's all of the challenges that this card was inspired by:
1.  CR84FN Color Challenge #18
2.  Sketchy Sunday Sketch #10
3. Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes
Well, that's my card for tonight!  I really like the colors and had fun making this card!  Have you all tried the new Lawnscaping challenge yet?  I've got a card for that one in store for everyone tomorrow!  AND this Sunday is the DeNami Floral Frenzy Blog Hop too!!!  SO much crafty fun! =)
