Feeling hot, hot, hot!

Evening all, my title says it all! Today I have been so warm, there seems to be no breeze, as I wanted to spend some of my day off crafting the heat has been a nightmare! Unfortunately my craft room is in the loft, and you know what they say 'heat rises' I can vouch for that my craft room has been sooo warm today, but it beats a day at work, so I'll stop complaining!
I have spent most of the day scrapbooking, which I will get round to posting at a later date, but I did manage to squeeze a quick card in.
It's the first time I've used my new Distress Inks, so apologies for the colouring, it's harder than it looks!
The image is 'Key Largo Tilda' the papers are from my stash (Nanas Nursery and Kitschy Kitchen) Flowers are from WOC and the sentiment and ribbon are from my stash.
I have followed sketch # 72 over at Sketch N Stash as it's a free week so you can choose from any of the past sketches. 
Here's my card, hope you like it!



Here is the sketch I followed:
Just one more photo, my fab birthday present from my hubby, a full set of distress inks complete with storage rack, what more could a girl want!     

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
