A Minute to Spare

My poor neglected blog, woe is it.  We've had house guests this week so there hasn't been a lot of time for crafting or posting.  During the week I snuck a little time in over a couple days and made this card.  It's for my strawberry friend's birthday. 
I didn't have a plan.  I started out with the image and the ribbon and went from there.  I couldn't find a sketch I liked so I played around till I couldn't stand it anymore and decided it wasn't going to get any better.  Now that it's been sitting on my desk for a couple days it's starting to grow on me.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Teddy Bo digi
ink - hp printer and Ranger "Scattered Straw" for distressing the edges
paper - Wausau "Sand" cs; October Afternoon "Fly a Kite" and "Thrift Shop" dp; Georgia Pacific white cs for the image
miscellaneous - copics; Crystazzi bling; burlap twine; strawberry button; gingham ribbon; eyelet lace; Nesties oval, scalloped oval and doily dies; sewing machine

Here's the challenges:
Teddy Bo #12 - Bling It On
Craft Your Days Away #23 - Vintage
Totally Gorjuss #86 - Ribbons and Lace
Sugar Creek Hollow - Tic Tac Toe (Lace, Buttons, Die Cuts)
Creative Inspirations #62 - Stitching

I Heart ribbon #5 - Linen thread or hemp
