Perfect Timing

This card is the result of the perfect timing of two of my favorite challenge blogs: Midnight Madness (sketch) and Lily of the Valley (thank you card), plus one blog new to me: Gltter Geeks (photo inspiration). I had already bought the paper on sale from Michael's, and immediately knew the California Poppy Thank You digistamp I had nabbed from Operation Write Home would be perfect for it, but I had no immediate need for a Thank You card, that is, until I came upon LOTV's challenge. So, with all three challenges in mind, I went for it, and the result is the card you see above.
