Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Today was a clear and sunny day with just a little bit of a breeze to keep the 80 degree temperature at a comfortable level.  Had a hectic day at my office as usual but its been lovely sitting here in my craft room.  I have a couple of cards to share with you today that I hope you will enjoy.

This card I am giving to a friend who is celebrating her 50th birthday and to her she has reached the old people group.

Just wait until she gets to be my age then I guess she will call that the "one leg under" group (lol).

Challenges I am entering this card include:
City Crafter Blogger - Happy Birthday Week 154
Sassy Cheryl's Blog - Challenge #161 Anything Goes (4/14)

I got this image from Graphic Fairy and used a prisma color pencil to lightly shade the sketch marks.

I used Martha Steward and EK Success border punch to separate my DP and then added ribbon and lace to complete the card.

I decided as usual to use my scraps to complete the inside of the card.

My DP is My Mind's Eye and the card-stock is Paper Studio.

I am entering this card in the following:
The Emerald Fairies Challenge Blog - Challenge #42 Recipe (4/29)
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Bingo (ribbon, punches and free)
Love To Scrap - Challenge #3 Recipe (3 layers, 1 image, 2 DP)

Hope everyone has a wonderful evening and I'll see you the next time around.  I think I'll go and color something before I decide to call it a day.

Thanks for stopping by
