Submission for Jen's at "Pieces of Me" Matchbook Card Challenge

Hey Everyone! Here's a card I made for Jen's at "Pieces of Me" Matchbook Challenge. I actually posted this card previously but I liked this matchbook card. It's an upside down version of this project. I saw it made this way in a book that I bought and I thought it was cool.

I think Jen's Challenge ends tomorrow but if you want to try it out. . .be sure to drop by her site.

I'll be posting the rest of the submissions to my TIC Day #6 - "Crazy for Ribbons" sometime this evening. I'm sort of juggling packing for my trip, cleaning my craft room, blogging, answering emails, doing the laundry, preparing packages that I need to send out (swaps and RAKs) tomorrow before we leave, preparing the dogs for the kennel, cooking dinner, and other things all at the same time. We leave on our trip on Sunday and whenever we go on a trip, I want the house spot-less because I want to come home to a clean house. Unfortunately, I haven't been feeling well for the past day or so and trying to do all of these things and not feel well at the same is not a picnic that's for sure!

I'll be bringing my laptop and hopefully the hotel rooms will have internet connections. I'm bringing a few craft items so I can make cards on my down-time or maybe when we're driving across Colorado. . .we're doing a road trip of Colorado. I'll blog the cards that I do make if it's possible.

Card Details:

Stamps: All Night Media #460H and the sentiments are by Anna Griffith stamps.
Paper: K&Co designer paper, DCWV textured cardstock, Stampin Up Barely Banana
Ink: Prismacolor Pencils with Gamsol, Prismacolor markers
Accessories: Stickles glitter, Making Memories metal charm, organdy ribbon, flower brads (unknown)
