To Post or Not to Post...That is the Question

It's been a bit of a "trying" week for me due to my Carpal Tunnel issues.  I'm late posting for the Annabelle Sketch challenge and I wasn't even sure I was going to participate.  I went in yesterday and got my 2nd Cortisone shot (they only last me about 3-4 weeks) and this morning my hand was feeling halfway normal so I went ahead and finished my card. 

The sketch this week was hard for me.  Those scallops threw me for a loop but I managed to get them done.  I'm combining two challenges today.  Anymore I try to do that to save wear and tear on the hand.  Which by the way I'm scheduled for surgery on April 8th so hopefully once that is over and I heal up I'll be back to stamping without pain again.  I look forward to that.
This card also is for Hope's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge.  I love the Hot Pink/Chocolate color combo so that's what I drew my inspiration from for this card.   I used stamps from Annabelle's Floral Stems and Flowers with Love (the sentiment) for this card.               Card Stock:  Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Designer Paper by Bo Bunny.  I wrapped some chocolate ric-rack around my scallop, added Blossom Sprinkles for my "bling" and spritz my flowers with Melon Mambo ink using the Color Spritzer tool.
Ink used,  Chocolate Chip, Melon Mambo.  I also used Oval Punches.

Please stop by the Annabelle Blog to check out the othe DT members cards.  They are really awesome!
