Stitches & Sketches

The challenge this week at Dutch Dare is a sketch! Please join the fun! You can mix it up a bit as long as as we can recognize the sketch.
I made this card for Theresa Gerber who won some blog candy of mine a few months ago. What I did not realize is Theresa lives in South Africa and can not use the gift certificate she won. So this card is for her and
will be sent soon along with a few gifts.  Surprise Theresa! I intended on sending you this before this post, but just got your address, so it will be sent to you soon!
