Pick 5

Wow we have had so much snow over the last two days.  It started yesterday, a snowday for the school (no buses running).  But I braved the snow and dropped the kids off on my way to work.  Today another snow day.  This time I opted to stay home with them, since I didn't sleep well last night.  (I'm coming down with a cold).  I couldn't have gotten out of the driveway anyway, there was soo much snow.  My dad came over this afternoon to help me with the snowblower.  DH was away this week on business and I don't use the blower, but he returned home late this afternoon.  He has since done the driveway again, and said it could be done again.  I forsee another snow day tomorrow.  At least the snow puts everyone in the Christmas spirit.
Onto my card.  I was able to make one this evening.  It was fun to do.  My daughter picked out the 5 items to be used on the card.  They are ribbon, brads, stamp, flowers, and decoritive paper, and she wanted the sentiment to say 'just relax at home'.  It didn't really fit so I shortened it to 'just relax'.  The card is for 365 Cards-Day 283-Pick 5.  You were to have someone pick 5 things from your stash for you to use on your card.  I followed the sketch from Card Patterns-Sketch 44.  Turned out not to bad.
Here is my card.

Here is the sketch.


Happy crafting ;o)

Nice job with the challenges - I knew the Pick 5 could be tough depending on what you had to work with, and I really think you did a great job pulling the items together!
