2 Sketches 4 You Card

I LOVE the sketches at 2 Sketches 4 You!!! Twice now they have pulled me out of a complete creative SLUMP!!!! True, I have been incredibly busy with my classwork for my first grad class and taking care of (playing with, really) my sweet little boy, but even when I've had a spare moment, I have not had any clue how to start stamping again. It has been a long dry spell. This morning I saw Laura's sketch 27, and just decided to jump right in. I felt inspired, I knew just the colors I wanted to use, I basically just whipped the card up from start to finish with no pausing to make decisions. I LOVE it when that happens!!! I love it even more when I actually like the finished product--and I adore this one!!! The colors are just so bright and happy. What do you think?This is my entry into the 1st Annual 2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown!!! Wish me luck!
