I'll be e-mailing you for your mail address so I can get the golfafella out to you right away! Congratulations on winning and thanks to everyone who left a comment.
Now onto my card for the day which I made to cover 3 challenges over on Split Coast.

First, it was for today's sketch challenge and for two Fan Club/Dirty Dozen Challenges.
1) to use buttons on a card and 2) make a card based on the inspiration piece seen here:

The inspiration I took from the picture was the colors and the tea theme. The pretty rose button was from my MIL's button box that I inherited when she moved into assisted living and the green ones looked like leaves to me with the slot shapes in their centers. I'm not going to think about how I will ever get this into an envelope if I mail it to someone! Maybe it will be a card I hand to someone - LOL!! I used the script cuttlebug folder to represent the words on the boxes (not sure you can see that on the inspiration picture) and my corner rounder punch for the scalloped edges on the box covers. I used my nestabilities to cut the squares for the teapot image.

All the papers and the ribbon are from PapertreyInk
