Card Sketch #42

It's Thursday, and as you all know, that's card sketch day at Sketches! {by Tamara}. This is my card for Card Sketch #42. Be sure to stop by Tamara's blog and see the new card sketch design team members announcement. I'm thrilled that two of the names on that list are VERY familiar to me! Congratulations to all of the ladies, but a special congratulations to my very good blogging friends, Alex and Becky! Woohoo!


I used some glitter flower cardstock for my card front. I'm not sure who makes this paper. I got it as a RAK, and I love it! I used my square punch to cut into the pink patterned paper, and then I matted those squares with the same green that I used for my card base. I added Primas, and I stamped the sentiment with a $1 acrylic Studio G stamp that I got from Michael's. Pretty simple, but very springy, don't you think?

Last night's concert was wonderful. The band director will be missed by so many! They put together a very nice tribute for him, and they had alumni come back to join in the last piece of music. It was very touching to see how many people love, respect, and admire this man! He has been such a positive influence on my girls, and we will miss him very much!

I have so many things to catch up on today! Some days go by so quickly, and there are days when I'm definitely not getting enough done! Oh well! What can you do? Have a great day, Happy May 1st, and thanks for stopping by!

This is a lovely card Carol - I like you layouts you did recently too. I've not been blogging too much lately, so sorry for not stopping by often - I am just permanently sick with this pregnancy!!
