In the Nick of Time

I finished this card just in time to enter it into this week's My Favorite Things sketch challenge.  The bottom of the gold bag and the woman's top are paper pieced with Basic Grey paper.   I thought the bracket die I have is too large for this sentiment so I punched the corners with a SU ticket punch.  I'm a little annoyed that I didn't have a charm to put on this, I know I had a golf bag or golf club, I guess I used it and didn't have any more.  I guess I have to go shopping because I expect to make more use of this stamp.
Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "WTG Plays Golf"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" and Versa Magic "Aloe Vera"
paper - Neenah "Brilliant White" Classic cs; Stampin' Up "Blushing Bride" cs; Basic Grey "Two Scoops" dp
miscellaneous - copics; brads, ribbon, baker's twine, button; SU ticket punch

Here's the challenges:
Whoopsie Daisy - Spring Colors
Simon Says Stamp & Show - Anything Goes
The Squirrel and the Fox #17 - One for the Girls
Charisma #18 - Pink and Girlie

By the way, I had a different kind of handicap while I was making this card.  The cat, Shamus, sat on the desk the entire time I was making this card.  When he decided to plop down I had just stamped the image which he laid right on top off.  His body also covered the scissors I was going to use and the package with the rest of the stamps.  He was slighty miffed that I pulled the stuff out from under him but he didn't move so we shared the desk for the duration of the card making.  The only time there was a little to do was when I pulled out the baker's twine, that got his attention but he still didn't stir.  In fact he's still laying here, but he has moved now he's smack in the middle with his back to me. 
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll come back again.
