This is the Life

Hi all! I wasn't sure I'd make it today but here I am with my DT project for this week's Challenge No. 292 at My Time to Craft. It's a sketch! Isn't that awesome!?! lol Most of the work has been done for me! I love it!
I've made this card for a special 'imaginary' friend of mine. I've 'known' her since 2006. She's imaginary because no one has ever seen her... including me! haha No! I've not gone crazy! She's an online friend. I like to call my online friends, 'imaginary friends'. lol I 'met' her in a craft forum when they were all the rage. Now there's FB and that's where we meet. 
Anyway, when I saw this image, it made me think of her. She's sssooooo lucky! She lives out in the country. I did for awhile too. But I work and I had to drive into the city and that got old for me quick and fast. We share the love of everything country! lol She's not working so I ssooo envy her life! lol Sinful, I am... but not Yoda! Ha! She's married to a wonderful man, as I said before, she lives out in the country and most of all... she's NOT working! Hallelujah! lol You know what makes her husband wonderful? I'm not the one living with him! Ha! So anyway, here's my little project. I hope you like! I was so pleased with how it came out!

This is the sketch:
Card Recipe:
Image colored with Copic markers and mounted on foam tape
Sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC
Pattern paper pad is Countryside Villa from The Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby and I distressed the edges. The tear on the right hand side by the sentiment was D - E - L - I - B - E - R - A - T - E! I didn't tear the paper and then try to make it part of the design. I. Did. Not! lol :p
Flower from Michael's bargain bins. It was white and I inked it with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Wild Honey to match the straw and chicks... aren't I clever? lol
Burlap ribbon from Michael's bargain bins
Black card stock from The Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby
Buttons are from my stash
Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black
Card base is black Bazzill textured card stock and measures 6X6 inches 
I'd like to enter my card into these challenges, if I may, please:
