I very rarely make a card just for fun; I usually have an occasion or a person in mind.  But when I saw this sketch from As You See It Challenge, I just had to play along.  LOVE it!
As soon as I saw it, I had this ticket die in mind.  This is the first time I've used it as I wasn't really sure what to do with it.  I think it turned out really well.  I also used up a few pieces that had been sitting on my desk from previous projects.  So, it's a win-win.

Addicted to Stamps #147--make your mark (I used markers to color the flower and ink to stamp the background, flowers and sentiment)
Creative Inspirations #316--for a friend
Clear It Out--theme: anything goes, stash: anything goes
Loves Rubberstamps #154--anything goes
Cards Galore Challenge--anything goes
One Sweet Challenge--dies and/or punches
Crafty Cardmakers #140--stitching (I used a stitched die to cut the background layer)
One Stitch At A Time #238--flowers
As You See It #89--sketch

Stamps: Verve "Surely Goodness", "Text Objects" sentiment; JustRite Stampers "Crackle Background"
Dies: Verve "Sprightly Sprigs"; MFT "Blueprints 13" and "Mini Ticket" border die

What a great take on the challenge sketch! The ticket strips are very creative and I like the pop of red the flower gives! Thanks for contributing to our gallery at As You See It Challenges this week.
