Hope This Year is Your Best One Yet! Sketch Saturday Challenge #178!!

This week has literally flown right on by!! But that's ok, because it's the weekend and I love my weekends!  I especially love Saturdays, because that means it's time for another great sketch to play with over at "Sketch Saturday"!!

Here's a little inspiration to get you started...

Here's the sure to stop over and check out all the the other wonderful inspiration the team has come up with!!

And this week we are sponsored by the wonderful and very talented Mo Manning!! If you have never visited her store before, you are definitely missing out!! She has an amazing variety of beautiful images to play with!!

Mo will be giving the winners a $5 credit to her store!! And this week's challenge is extra special, because there will be 3 winners chosen!!

The absolutely adorable image I used for my card is called "Baby Fairy Flora" and can be of course found in Mo's shop HERE!!

I'm super excited to use my new flourish die I got from "MFT Stamps"!! Isn't it beautiful??!! I think I have some new favorite dies to love and collect!! MFT dies cut so good with such intricate detail! And for my sentiment I used another gorgeous "Papertrey Ink" stamp!

Carried the sketch and theme onto the inside message panel as well! I'm in love with the sketch this week!
