It's Finally Friday!!

Tonight I am posting this blog from Southern California...HAPPY DANCE!!!  We are here safe and sound and indeed this is a blessing!
Today when I was driving I had the car window open and I smelled grass, and green, I saw oranges hanging fom trees, and blossoms in full bloom.  I saw palm trees, and felt warm sun on my skin.  It is summer in the winter!  Hooray!

This morning while riding I was inspired to make a card (I don't just sit well!) based on this weeks sketch from retrosketches.blogspot.ca .  I started with the polka dot pattern paper which I love, and built the rest around it. We can make love cards with all kinds of colors any time of year!

All the papers are from Michaels and the pearl hearts are from the dollar store.  I inked  the edges of the paper with colour box chalk ink.  The heart was cut from Design Tool Kit #2 from paperwishes.com 
 I just love working from sketches, and I love how this card came together.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
