Cards in Envy -- Many Thanks for Challenge #4

Oh My Goodness, Cards in Envy has the best sketch this week.  I had so much fun working on it. 
I rotated it so the rounded corners were on the bottom. 
I used a SRM sentiment, My Minds Eye -- Indie chic, some olive and brown cardstock, and a corner punch to round the corners.'
Here is my card:

Remember, Cards in Envy is for cards that fit into a regular first class postage envelope. The most common size being the A2 (5.5 inch x 4.25 inch) OR a square card (5 inch x 5 inches or SMALLER). And please remember no lumpy bumpy embellishments. A good rule of thumb is--only one layer on foam tape, no buttons on foam tape, flat flowers (paper flowers are good), no rosettes, no super thick buttons or brads, etc. If all layers and embellishments together are thicker than 1/4 inch then it's not a card for Cards in Envy. Any cards that look too lumpy or bumpy or appear too thick will not qualify for the winners circle and may be removed from the challenge.

The challenge starts today, Monday, May 6th and runs until Sunday, May 19th. The Design Team will pick One Winner and a Top Three. Each will earn a Cards in Envy Badge for their blog.

Come over and play with us.
