Sketch 89 (almost)

Do you recognize this paper?  I've worked with a lot of DCWV Crafty stack sheets this month.  The patterns are so fun and retro.  The flowers are by Making Memories, stamp by SU.  This is almost sketch #89 from OWH.  I keep hearing sketches are just jumping off points, so we're going to call it #89, OK?  :)   It's worth your while to click that last link.  There are free digis on that page in addition to the sketch. 

This card is for my best friend, Claire, whose birthday is today.  While most of my cards go to OWH, this one won't be.  Making it for Claire gave me the perfect excuse to use a super-thick pearl brad by My Mind's Eye and not worry about "mail fail" for our heroes.  I have padded envelopes!  Claire called yesterday to say she'd gotten the card.  After she read it, she showed it to her fiance.  She said he was nonchalant until she told him I'd made it- then he was impressed.  I told her the biggest compliment was that it looked good enough he didn't know I'd made it!  :)
