Stampotique Designers Challenge 29 - using a sketch

This is my entry to the Stampotique challenge (Stampotique only stamps) which is a simple card with the sentiment "Always Late". It's becoming a bit of a family joke that I never send cards and presents on time. I often buy the present and make a card and then in my head I think it's posted and several weeks later it is still sitting on my desk.
I followed the sketch using Rangers Manila cardstock which I inked with Faded Blue and Chine Blue Distress Inks and a little Adirondack Espresso. I stamped Oh My Dear onto coordinations card and then mounted a piece of 7 Gypsies acetate onto the top of her.
I used the same coredinations card with stamped circles using a lid and the adirondack espresso ink. The ledger page is a journalling piece from 7 Gypsies. The word always is from Crafty bits and the definition of late is torn out of my large stock of old dictionaries. I extended the horizontal strip beyond the card edge as I liked the way it balanced the rest of the card.
