Hi - WMSC58, CR84FN35 and Simon Says Stamp and Show

It's Sunday!  Where has the weekend gone?  It's been over a week since I last posted, and I haven't had any time to create this past week due to my SIL passing away from a long fight with Lupus.  Debbie was diagnosed at the age of 13 and passed away at the age of 41 years old and left behind a son, Matthew age 13 and my DH's brother John.  She was way too young to bury, and she will be missed. 

On to a lighter note.....this card was created based off of this week's sketch challenge at WMSC, Mona's lovely color challenge at CR84FN, and Simon Says Stamp & Show - anything goes.  It's been along time since I have been able to play, and it felt good!  Thanks ladies!! :)

DP's are misc. scraps that I was able to work in and all stamps are Waltzing Mouse Victorian Frippery.  Seam binding ribbon, vintage buttons, decorative pins, Liquid Pearls, white paint, paper flower, appliqued trim from my darling friend Stella, paper heart from Martha Stewart and a swatch of burlap.

Off to post my card - thanks for taking a peek!  Enjoy the rest of your day!! Cathy xx :)
