2 Sketches 4 You challenge #1

Happy Tuesday All! This is my very first sketch challenge with Laura and Kazan over at 2 sketches 4 you. Let me tell you a little about these two ladies. Laura first of all has been such an inspiration to me, she is so extremely talented and sweet on top of it. When I was over at Stampinggetaway (my old blog) I was pretty much feeling uninspired and things in our personal lives were not so great, I wasn't posting very often anymore. Then Laura started leaving comments and it really gave me the drive to keep going. We started chatting and found out we live rather close to each other. We have met up in person a few times and she is such a sweet heart! Laura probably doesn't know it, but she really has given me a new outlook on my paper crafting and I am so lucky to have her as a friend. Thank you Laura!! Hugs!!
As for Kazan, hello...she is SO talented, have you seen her stuff! When I started leaving comments on her blog she has always been quick to respond back. Kazan is like the blogging girl next door, she is so sweet and sincere and such an inspiration. I am so excited to be able to meet up with her for the blogging party I am hosting on June 21st. These two ladies ROCK!! Aaaah am I getting all mushy on you guys...sorry! Check out 2 Sketches 4 You and play along each week. I know I will!
So onto the card, I made this card using Laura's sketch and some of the pieces from the kit that I won over at Caardvarks called the "May Kit" (thank you Caardvarks, you rock!!). This kit was so much fun to play with.

Here is the recipe for the card:

Thanks everyone for your sweet comments and for stopping by. See ya tomorrow with my card using Kazan's sketch.
