Ugly card, pretty flower basket

Sorry that I've been "hiding" for the past few nights. I was sick AGAIN yesterday!!! I just can't seem to get healthy & well. I haven't been sleeping and I know that's adding to the issues. Anyway, today was MUCH better!

This is a card I did last Friday night for the VSN (Virtual Stamp Night) challenges over on SCS. They had 4 challenges, and this was the first one--doing something using the old round hole punch. This is all I could come up with, a round hole embellishment. The color is Elegant Eggplant, but it look almost black in the picture. I'll post the other 2 challenges that I participated in later in the week. However, I don't have any of the details for this card, because other than the elegant eggplant, the rest of the cardstock was scraps. And the stamp is one I've had for years. However, the ink is Elegant Eggplant, and the sentiment is punched using the SU lg oval and the scallop oval punch.

Have a great evening. Tomorrow is pizza night here at our house. (We have pizza EVERY Friday night.) Until then........

Happy Stamping!
Patty & Winnie

Patty: I like what you came up with on the punch compared to some of the things I saw!! I am so sorry you are still sick. I know about the not sleeping thing. You have to put on some nice music when you can't sleep and do something quiet that you enjoy, either read a book or make a card until you get sleepy. Feel better soon!!!

We are our own worst critics! This card is beautiful! I personally find it difficult to work with yellow! Great job! That flower basket is awesome too!
