Create4Fun's Sir Stampalot's Stamp Something for ' Sketch Saturday

Sketch Saturday have a great sketch which I used for this card, swapping the image and sentiment rectangles for ovals and rotating the sketch.  The theme at Sir Stampalot is The Lazy Hazy Days of Summer and I have interpreted this with a pretty fuschia stamp I got in a swap and I've made a card for a special auntie whose health is failing.
Stamp Something wanted something flowery and Create4fun also wanted flowers.  I used Kay&Co papers, craftworks candy, a Martha Stewart butterfly punch and a Stampin Up sentiment.  The card is staged with fuschias by Mother Nature!  You can click on the image to get a better look if you like.  Thanks for stopping by!
