Java for two

This week's sketch challenge #23 over at Cupcake Craft Challenge was super cute, so I definitely wanted to enter it. I decided to use some paper that I've been hoarding and go with one of my favorite color combinations: Green and Purple. Javabella is a super classy image and one that I really like, so I used my last image for this card.I decided to turn the card to allow for my larger image to fit.

Hmm, you know looking at my card and the sketch I just realised that I took the inner design of the sketch to be the whole sketch...but I think that was supposed to be part of the card! LOL! Oh well, I still stuck to the sketch and it's identifiable...right? I might make up another card just in case though!

Card Details
Size: 5" square

Image: Javabella (stampingbella); Medium: W/C pencils and Blender Pen (SU!); Paper: DSP My Mind's Eye, CS Olive and Purple (Paper Studio); Misc.: 1" lilac satin ribbon, 3/8" iridescent purple/green ribbon, adhesive gems, "Stardust" Stickles, and Lacey Border Punch (Martha Stewart)

I got out of class early today due to my last class being cancelled for today and Thursday which is great! More time for crafty stuff...and since I don't have any homework--I hope to enjoy myself plenty! One of the things that stuck with me after sitting through lectures today was a quote that I discovered in my World History book. It was the last sentence in a section discussing 17th and 18th century witch hunts. I don't normally like things by Voltaire, but this sentence just made me smile, and so it will be my...

Thought for the Day:
