Papertrey Paper Dolls: Challenge #3

I'm alive!  I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted.  I've actually had some time to create over the past few weeks, just no time to edit photos and post.  Sorry this picture is so terrible, but I really wanted to be able to participate in this weeks challenge over on the Paper Dolls blog so at 8:30 tonight, this was the best lighting I could get.

Here's the sketch.  (Love square cards. Way to go, Suzanne!)

And here's my card.  
I needed a little thank you card for a student who brought me a basket of fruit for Teacher Appreciation Day last week.  I used Soft Stone cardstock for the base and some Pretty Pastels PP for the first mat layer.  The second mat layer is some Archiver's cs I had in my stash.  I used the A Little Argyle and Round & Round stamp sets, Dusty Concord Distress Ink and PTI Fresh Snow Ink.  Then a little piece of Fresh Snow Twill to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by!

Anika, the distressed argyle is awesome--and makes the card. Your ribbon knot is perfect, darn you! :-D I need to practice . . . I'll bet your student and his/her family loved their card!
