CAS Blog's 100th Sketch Celebration!!!

I was very excited this week when I received an email from Natasha at the Clean & Simple blog, asking me to take part in their 100th Sketch celebration!  I love that sketch site, and I use the sketches often for the cards on my blog.  Here is the card that I came up with for the 100th sketch!!
  "Wishing You All the Best" supplies: 
Cardstock: The Paper Company
Paper: K & Company and Papertrey Ink
Stamp/Ribbon/Button/Die: Papertrey Ink (YOF: Sweet Peas set) 
Ink: Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black) 
Twine: Darice Inc. 
Glitter: DecoArt
Colored Pencil: Heidi Swapp
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Fold green dotted paper in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Cut a scalloped border to a cream cardstock block using a Cuttlebug and medium scallop die.  Stamp the floral image directly to the cardstock block, color in the greenery, and then stamp the sentiment to the front.  Stamp the floral image to pink patterned paper, and cut out just the flowers.  Glitter them, and piece them on top of the existing stamped image.  Adhere the entire block to the front of the card base.  Tie ribbon across the top, and add a button to the middle of the bow using twine.

For the celebration, the Clean & Simple blog is doing a blog hop with some amazing card designers!!!  Here is the list, starting at the Clean & Simple blog.  If you came to my blog for other purposes, I would love for you to check out the blog hop!  It is sure to be amazing!!  Here you go, and have lots of fun!  ♥♥♥
