A Belles n' Whistles Card that works for A Spoon Full of Sugars - Challenge 64

This is a wild one....
No, not the card, the layout!
A Spoon Full of Sugars Challenge
this week has an awesome layout by Camilla

When I picked my papers, and started to play with how I
thought they should look,
I was just having a little fun with a layout.

I colored my image, and started to cut my pieces and place
them around the card. I of course didn't get anything glued down
and then had to leave. When I finally came back to work on my
card, I had been looking around the little blogging world
and decided I'd see what "A Spoon Full of Sugars" Challenge was this week.

I saw the sketch by Camilla and said...
"Oh that looks interesting, think I'll try it"
I printed it out, and brought it to my crafting area, and set it down.
There in front of me is my
Belles n' Whistles
card that was still in progress.

As I sat down and started removing the pieces of paper that I had set into place earlier
getting ready to actually glue them into place and I suddenly realized that this layout looked vaguely familiar.

I glanced over at the piece of paper that I had printed out with this weeks
Spoon Full of Sugar sketch, and was in shock

That my random papers laying on my card front was
IDENTICAL to this weeks sketch but was missing the
circle, and the 2 corner pieces????

I could not even believe it. I bet that would never happen
again if you wanted it to.
Of course my image piece is not really rectangle
it's more square, but still...

Soooooo I went ahead and picked a paper to add the
circle and the corner pieces I then used that paper to paper piece
in the bandana on the older sisters head and make it be the shirt,
hair ribbons, and patch on the younger sister pantleg.
This tied it all in nicely.

Never in a million years
would this ever happen this way again I'm sure.
But anyway, so now ...My Card!

All the papers I used were from DCWV Spring MatStack, with the exception of the green background paper. For that I did a little embossing with gold.
On the inside, the sentiment was computer generated.
We've all heard that saying before I'm sure,
but I thought it went perfectly with this image.
My plan is to send this card to my sister in Arizona,
I miss her!
