Sophisticated Thanks

Well we are now past the middle of the week which means the weekend is almost here!!
So far everyone in my house(my husband and I) has managed to dodge all the sickness out there right now.....I do believe not having children has contributed to that!As cute as they are......they ooze snot and are perfect little breading-grounds.....but sooo cute!~ hehe
Anyways this card is a thank-you that I made for the pastors wife(Lyn)in my church! Every once-in-a-while the church pools together favorite recipes and makes a cookbook(I love cooking and baking) so naturally I purchased one. Well my little sister recently moved out of my parents house and is learning to be an independent person with a disablilty. I have been wanting to get this cookbook for her because she lost her original copy and it has a lot of our late mothers favorite recipes. Well the anual church garage sale was coming up and I asked Lyn to snag me up a cookbook if one was donated...of course none she continued searching throughout our church to find an extra. It has been months now and she delivered a copy of the cookbook to me but would not accept any money so I made her this card!!!

For this card I used DCWV and K&Company DP. The image and sentiment are from The Pink Cat Studio;Lily and Tweet set. The flower embellishments I cut out of matching cardstock and the jewels along the bottom are a "dollar store special". The swooped paper from left to right is slightly pop-dotted and the image and sentiment are both pop-dotted a bit higher. The sunglasses have glossy accents on them and the earings are loose gems i put on. The layout for this card was inspired by a sketch challenge for The Humble Pie challenge which it will be entered in as we speak!
Thanks for stopping in and Scrap safely!!!
