Ask Seek Find~Sketchfest Tuesday from caardvarks

I certainly had no idea where this card was going when I started, it kind of took a turn of its own.....a little vintage...a little different!

I made this card for the caardvarks Sketchfest~this is day three, and I am still on track.....I used lots of different elements on this card, and I know it doesn't look like it, but it took me quite awhile to finish this early am (of course that was with all the interuptions of the cats and the dog) sanding the cardstock seemed to take forever on the numbers eb folder I used.  The sentiment is one I purchased recently at a local craft store, Ask and it will be given to you; Seek and you will Find; Knock and the Door will be opened to you (Mathew).  The key stamp I used is one I have had "forever".....it was much golder, but, ahem...when I turned it over to add adhesive it wasn't dry, so now I have a nice gold key image on my craft pad...good thing it washes off....but then I decided I liked the "muted" look.........okay off to clean up the BIG mess I made in my room!
Here is the Sketch if you would like to participate!
