Here is the sketch we were to follow...

Hi there!

I'm back again with a card for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  When I first saw this stamp from SU, I thought hmmm this is a very unusual stamp!  But, I had to have it for the vintage style!  This card is for a co-worker at work.  She is just so positive and helpful to us all.  I really appreciate all that she does to help me!  I adjusted this card several times, but came up with this end result.  I messed with the ribbon and the yellow panels. Finally...OK...enough...leave it be.  I really do envy all those out there who can whip up a great CAS card in no time.  I'm one of those who think what else can I add?!  Anways, the card is pretty self-explanatory.  I'm so grateful I had a sketch to follow on this one.  Tuesday Morning Sketches come up with some great sketches...thank you!  I appreciate you stopping by today!  You take care and have a wonderful blessed Easter, hugs!!:-))
