I'll Miss You Card using a Bugaboo Sketch

What a crazy, busy weekend I had. I finished this card on Friday night, but never had a chance to post it until now. Because of that I missed out on the challenge that this sketch was based on. Oh well. I made this card for a special friend who is moving. She is my CTMH upline, who just happens to live a couple blocks from me now, but is moving to Toronto next week! On Saturday night a bunch of her upline got together for a little Potluck and Crop as a last Get-Together. So I actually have a couple 8 x 8 LOs to post later. Good Luck and Happy Trails Laurie! I'll miss your guidance, and friendship- but we still have phone and e-mail!
Back to my card....I used my absolute favorite non-Close To My Heart stamp. Little Miss "Daisy" By Elizabeth Bell for Sugar Nellie Stamps.This was the sketch I started my card from:
Scrappy Sketch # 30. This challenge ended Saturday.=(
