"Let's Get Sketchy" Cardz TV Design Team Challenge

Welcome to the "Let's Get Sketchy" Cardz TV Design Team Challenge!  Mary over at Cardz TV gave us ladies on the Design Team a Challenge.  She picked a sketch and we were supposed to create a card from this sketch.  So here is my take on the sketch.
A local news broadcaster is was diagnosed with breast cancer last year.  She is a wonderful, strong person and she is doing really well in her treatment.  So I decided to make a card to show I care.
For the sentiment I used the Cardz TV stamps set Encouraging Thoughts.  This set has great sentiments.  The card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  The polka dot paper came from a Recollections paper pack from Michaels, and was cut at 4 x 5 1/4.  I used an EK Success ribbon punch for the three ribbons.  For the mat on the left, the pink mat was cut at 1 3/4 x 2 3/4, the ivory mat was cut at 1 1/2 x 2 1/2  and I used the Textile Cuttlebug folder.   I used Rose Bud Memento ink over the top of it.   For the sentiment mat I used an EK Success punch, and for the pink mat I cut a piece 1 1/4 x 2 1/2.

Now it's your turn!  Just create a card for any occasion using the above sketch.  Use any colors you like, and substitute the flowers and ribbon with any embellishment you'd like.  You also can turn the sketch to go any direction.  Then head over to Mary's blog and post your name and a link to your card in Mr. Linky by midnight EST, Sunday March 18.  She will be using to pick a winner.  The winner will win an awesome stamp set!  She will announce the winner on Monday, so go ahead and take this challenge!  Please check out my Design Team Sister's blog's for more wonderful inspiration.  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog, and please leave me a comment.  I would love to hear from you!

Lots of Hugs,
The Queen
