Happy H{ippity}Hop - January 17, 2011

I made this card for my personal "Magazine Monday Challenge."  The inspiration for this card can be found in the January/February 2011 (yes, the current issue) of Paper Crafts magazine (p. 62).  Kalyn Kepner designed the card, "Lifetime of Love."  
Paper:  Kraft, Echo Park, October Afternoon
Images/Sentiment:  Now & Always
Ink:  Palette Burnt Umber
Misc: scrap ribbon, Bazzill pearl brads, MS punch

This card is for {ippity}'s January Challenge - Week 2.  Check out this week's challenge, here.  I used the first week's sketch and last week's colors to create this card.  I thought my brain was going to explode!
Thanks for looking!
 Paper:  Bazzill cardstock, Making Memories
Images:  Farm Fresh, Quotes a la Happy
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Misc.:  scrap lace, MS punch
