Get Sketchy- Whimsical Wednesdays reveal

Happy Hump day fellow scrappers.. 
Since its Wednesday, I get to share a card I created and also a sketch that I created for Whimsical Wednesdays challenge blog..

I have been holding onto a lot of Graphic45 papers since I love them so much and normally just like looking at them and really don't want to ever use them.. <--Is there any point to that?.. I think not..LOL
I finally got the courage to use the On The Boardwalk collection that I bought a few years back and decided to make a card for my best friend who lives in Florida..
I will be sending her a small package here in a few days and thought to put this card in for the long flight..LOL

Here is my card:

Lots of layering on this card and I've really fallen in love with how the layering looks..  I used an image from the paper collection  of the three ladies.. I thought it was perfect with the sentiment I wanted to use.. all in all, I think its a cute card :)

Oh! almost forgot to share the sketch with you..LOL

and for a few close ups:

The sentiment, I stamped on a cream colored piece of cardstock, then I inked the edges and finally before adhering it to the card, I bent it a little in middle.. it almost looks like ribbon in real life..
and I couldn't make a card without adding a few punched butterflies..LOL

This sentiment can be found on the Whimsical Fun collection.

all righty then fellow scrappers and card makers... That does it again for me for this Wednesday.. Hope you stop by Whimsical Wednesdays and check out what the rest of our amazing design team have created for you..
Hope everyone has a scrap-tastic week..
