Tuesday Takes With Sketches In Thyme

Firstly I want to say that am glad I made most of this weeks creations prior to this week because I do indeed have 2 sick kids! This does nothing for one's creative mojo, because I am stressed about fevers and sore throats and praying I don't get it!  LOL!

With that being said Happy Tuesday it's going to be beautiful out today and for this I fell blessed. Today we have another great sketch up for Tuesdays Takes # 13 at Sketches in Thyme. If you are a big Mojo fan I am sure you'll be pleased.

  
How great is this, it's so open for interpretation!

Here is my card using my favorite Ketto Calliope:


I really like how this card sort of took a life of it's own and came together with ease. I used my embossing button technique allowing some of the button to be exposed for a different look. Here is a close up: 

Don't you love that crown charm I have been hoarding it for ever!  
The card decided it was time so farewell little crown. This card is for a friend I have known
since kindergarten but it's late!!!  I am sure she'll understand!

So now it's your turn and remember, if you play along,
you'll have a chance to win this sweet sugary candy :

Thanks for stopping by!

I have been itching for this to post because when I saw it, I gasped. Really, this is just one cool card. Love the image, the self made stamped design paper, and what you did with that button. The crown is so well placed, and appropriate for that little girl too. I can just feel the personality coming off her.
Hugs
Tanya
