What a fantastic sketch and your card is delightful!!! This card http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/885121?cat=500&ppuser=95678 started out well but had to be changed a bit due to a "blooper". Hopefully I will have time to do another and be able to follow your sketch "to the T". Thanks for doing this!!!
