Amazing Day

Did you make today ridiculously amazing?

You did?  Oh - I'm so jealous!
It was just a normal, insanely crazy day for me at the 
patent (intellectual property) law office where I
 work - after a grueling hour and a half of physical therapy 
for my knee - surgery was only 10 days ago - seems 
like it was longer than that!!
The challenges for this amazing card:

the wonderful colors were from Create with Connie and Mary   CCMC322

and the sketch was from the fabulous Freshly Made Sketches     

What I used -
Stamp set:  Amazing Birthday (#134225)
Inks:  Tangerine Tango (#126946), Crushed Curry (#131173), and Jet Black StazOn
Card Stocks - Whisper White (#100730), Basic Black (#121045), Crushed Curry (#131199)
Ribbon - Basic Black 1/4" Taffeta (#119261) and Neutrals as well as the Regals Candy Dots.
Then there was the awesome Rotary Arm for the Trimmer with the Scallop Blade and the Punch that creates a tag top (darned if I can remember what it's called).

Go out there and make today ridiculously amazing, my friend!  
There's still time - unless, of course, you're cruising 
around in blogland during the wee hours - in that case, there's always tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by ~~ Happy Stampin' and Scrappin'!
