Card Sketch Blog Hop Day 1

Hi! Welcome to the Sketch blog hop! The purpose of this hop is to show how all of these talented bloggers can take the same sketch and come up with totally different cards. If you've never used a card sketch before, give it a try! Be sure to check back on Sunday, as there will be some bloggers posting cards on day 2. So sit back & be inspired!  If you just came from Susan's you are in the right place, if you would like to start at the beginning, start at Jennifer's blog.

I have never done a sketch before so when I saw this, I jumped at the chance to try it.  For today's card I used my favorite House Mouse stamp.  I just love how relaxing it looks, makes me wish I could find a leave and drift down a lazy river on a beautiful summer's day without a care in the world.
I used Martha Stewarts butterfly punch for the embellishment.  The sentiment was printed on my computer and punched with the Stampin Up scallop oval punch.  The corners of the image were also punched out using a Martha Stewart corner punch and I made some faux stitching around the image to mimick the ribbon.  Hope you like it.
Your next stop is Jamie

Here is a line up in case you get lost along the way.
