a little back peddling

A few weeks back I was having issue with one of the sketches from C4E and finally I just ran out of time and had to tell Michele I wasn't going to be able to participate. Well I have felt really bad about that as I made a commitment to her and by opting out well that wasn't living up to my end of the bargain :( I have finally had a chance to get back to that sketch and I am not going to lie...I still struggled with it. I pressed on and ended up with this card! The sentiment is perfect for the situation also and I hadn't planned it that way LOL!

All the patterned paper is from DCWV Pocket Full of Posies, the other paper is from Hollo's. I added pearls from Paper Studio and then a Page Pebble from Making Memories over the word "No" in the sentiment. I added a Fiskar's Rain Dot in blue to the lower right corner. The scallop was cut with Paper Shapers scissors - Amazing to me I was able to cut it pretty straight! LOL
The stamps are from Seaside Stampin Ink and I love the little chicks - I really ought to use them more often!

So Michele thanks for letting me pass one week, I appreciate it and I hope you like what I finally ended up with!

I just LoVe the warm summery colors!! The scallops look like they were a punch!! Great job with those scissors - I have mine in a drawer - never get good cuts with them :)
The chicky is so cute with the flowers ... and this is a PERFECT thank you card with that sentiment!
