When is a challenge not a challenge?

When you think you are going to enter it and then realise that the card isn't right for it. I made this card based on Anne-Marie's sketch given for Sunday sketch and stamp 169, completely forgetting that I needed to stamp to qualify for the challenge ... you'd have thought I'd have realised that the clue is in the name of the challenge blog! Anyway, I still acknowledge that I used the sketch even though I'm not entering the challenge:

The background is a piece of embossed vellum, the striped paper is an offcut and the circular embossed image is upcycled from an old card. Across the bottom is a piece of washi tape and a Craftwork cards sentiment.

This is for:

Polka doodles 33: have a heart
Divas by design: Christmas in August
Emma's 19: floral
