A sketch card and a winner!

Hi everyone!  I have a sketch card to share today.  I saw this sketch on JenMarie's blog last week and HAD to play along!  It's from Limelight Papercrafts, I am 2 days late to enter the challenge, heehee, typical right?  Anyway, I was drawn to and REALLY wanted to use a shaped sentiment panel, but I couldn't get it to work.  Oh well, next one -lol!
I used a gorgeous sentiment from Verve's new set, Richly Blessed and I paired it with the rich papers from K&Co Glad Tidings die cut card making pad.  This card is pretty simple, first I trimmed off the scalloped bottom of the pre-made card, cut up some scraps for the bottom (I trimmed the papers carefully to show that amazing cardinal) and tied Burgundy wrinkled ribbon into a double bow.  The flower is an ivory cherry blossom from Wild Orchid Crafts.
You can purchase the papers and ribbon at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store as part of a kit, or as separate items.
And now on to the crafty items WINNER!  I went to Random.org...

Oh, Michelle, You have such a wonderful heart to have such a lovely give-away without making us run to 3rd base, do a cart wheel, go to the library look up a certain book in the non-card catalog...and then have us leave a comment for you! (I couldn't do all of that running!) Thank you for your generous give-away. He IS Able, Traci S. Join us weekly for a card-give-away!
