How do you know...? Unscripted Sketches #132

Hi!  Just a quick post with a birthday card that I made for one of the guys I work with.  I needed this card to much larger than a standard A2, so there's enough room for everyone at work to sign it.  So, this was a fold that I haven't done before.  I used a full sheet of card stock, scoring it twice, so it folds in thirds.

I'm playing along in the Unscripted Sketches #132 challenge.  Here's the sketch:

 And, here is my take on the sketch.

Since this is for one of the I didn't dare use any ribbon or bling.  And that was SO difficult! lol
I did some layering over the card base.  I used a border punch on a piece of Night of Navy card stock, then layered a strip of patterned paper over that.  Two Spellbinder dies were used for the sentiment.  Oh, and I wrapped a length of linen thread around the front of the card.
I didn't have a stamp with the type of sentiment I needed for this card.  So I searched online for verses...and this one seemed just right!
Thanks for taking a look!

card stock: river rock, not quite navy, cajun craze, whisper white (Stampin' Up!)
dsp: well worn (SU)
other: linen thread (SU), bracket edge punch (EK), dies (long classic rectangle large & small pinking circles by Spellbinders)
