Back from beyond

Hi everyone, sorry I haven't been around this week. I volunteered to do inventory at work, which required staying late several evenings and working all weekend. Needless to say, nothing else got done, which meant by Sunday night my house was a disaster! Things are mostly back to normal now, but boy, I sure can't wait for the weekend to get some rest!
I managed to sit down and make a card last night, I used a sketch from Card Patterns, a colour scheme from the Colour Chef and a recipe from Cooking with Katie. (flowers, clear shapes and a sketch) Just a very simple card, but I like how this turned out. The black flower border is a fuzzy adhesive tape I got from a dollar store and now I'm kicking myself I didn't get more, cause it's so nice. The clear shapes are from CTMH, as is the cardstock. Also, Just us Girls is looking for embossing, it added a nice touch to my squares.
Hopefully, I'll have more to post tomorrow, but I'm hosting a crop this weekend, so at some point I have to get ready for that. (I forsee a very busy Friday night!) See you later!

This is such a lovely card! Hope you get some time to relax.
Oh yeah, thought I would mention, your card actually qualifies for another challenge:) Crazy 4 challenges - their challenge is to use acetate on a card. Your clear hearts work so perfectly :)
