A LA Card Monkey! Post 97

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  We are still recovering or trying to recover from the flu at our house.  Poor Jayden has missed a week of school and I am still not sure about tomorrow.
Anyway on to something fun!  A la card Monkey!

This week was a sketch plus anything goes!
Here is the sketch
I love this sketch and think I may be doing a couple of cards with this one this week.

Here is what I came up with
 I went Basic Grey for the base and used the Edgelits and matching embossing folder and stamp for the edge of this simple card.  I used Perfect Plum for the middle band and embossed it with the Big Shot. I created the main image with the Apothecary Stamp set from the Occasions Mini.  I heat embossed the image with Black and then coloured the image with Perfect Plum, Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzaz.  The Phrase was added with dimensionals and heat embossed with versa mark then Perfect Plum and clear embossing powder.
Inside I stamped with the adorning accents and used and embossed piece of Perfect Plum that matches the front panel.

I hope you join us at A la card Monkey challenge.

Glittery Hugs

The inside of the card is just as lovely as the outside. I am so in love with my Big Shot too.
