Cardabilities Sketch 8 DT Reveal

Hello dear friends,
It's time for a new sketch reveal from Cardabilities...
Karan is bringing more of her sketchy goodness with uber fab sketch #8:
Here's my card:

This is a thank you card I made for my new neighbor :) She brought over some homemade chocolate chip cookies as we were moving in to our new place. How sweet of her, right? Hence the sentiment "So sweet of you."

The Deets:
I used papers from the Capella collection from Basic Grey (OMGOSSSSH!!! this is a super gorgeous collection! I'm seriously trying hard not to hoard ;)
The base CS is True Thyme (SU! way retired), & True Thyme ink. The flower is Prima sprinkled with glitter & the crystals came from a little wedding spring from the wedding section at M's. I used my fav Viva Decor Pearl pen in cream for the pearls. The lace border is a MS punch (one of my favs :)

Here's a peek of the innies:
Both sentiments come from the set Signature Greetings (PTI). I bent the stamp a little to curve it around the edge, but that made a smudge :( but... as I always say... "mistakes are opportunities for adding embellishments!" so I added a little Prima flower to cover it up. ;)  Yes, that's the reason why I add so many embellishments to my cards :0 Hee! Hee!

Remember, you have until August 15th to play along & linky your creation so we can come take a peek. Please stop by the Cardabilities blog & see the amazing work the rest of the DT has created to inspire you.

Thanks for peeking!
