A Sketch And A Song

Hey there! Popping in to share a card I made combining two different challenges! I used this super fun sketch from Unscripted Sketches:

And inspiration from CAS-ual Fridays' LOVE song challenge:

When my husband, Tony, and I were first dating, I was working for a public accounting firm. I was on a really challenging audit, working long hours, and completely stressed out...when I received an e-mail from Tony. It was a recording of him singing "Fly Me To The Moon" by Frank Sinatra. It was his way of saying "hang in there, I love you." It totally cheered me up! And ever since then that song has been our little "pick me up" tune.

The little cloud die-cuts and the sentiment are from the You Move Me Die-Namics Set (My Favorite Things Stamps). This set was part of that AMAZING goodie box that I won from my sweet friend, Glenda!!! And I created the moon using a couple of circle dies.
