An Almost Jen's Sketch for You to Try and the Actual One

So this is the card I wanted to make for Jen's sketch for you to try (SFYTT) this weekend. I was so excited to use my new Papertrey Green Tea dp and Mega Messages stamp set. However, once I was done and loving it, I noticed I still needed to add 3 embellishments in the top right hand corner. Ugh! I tried everything, but nothing would work and it would take away from the gorgeous button flower image. Needing a card for my nephew's birthday today (Happy 17th, Luke!), I started the sketch over again. I used the Kamloops Blazers (local WHL hockey team) colours and my new Papertrey flourish and star print sets. I was inspired by a card Dawn McVey did a few months back. I hope he likes it...he will definitely like the Starbucks card I'm tucking inside!!
