The First WMS Saturday Sketch Challenge!

Note: To see my very first Speedy The Cats' Friends Challenge card - please scroll down to the post below this one!

This is the first sketch for the new Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenges. You'll find a fun sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog every Saturday morning!
Here's the card I created using the sketch.
The pretty circle and stem in the top left corner are from the Vintage Circles Small set and the sentiment is from Fancy Phrases.

Starting the sketch challenge blog has been a dream of Claire's for some time, and now that Waltzingmouse Stamps is a year old, she thought it was just the right time to begin this adventure.
We hope this will be a place to showcase what our treasured customers come up with using Waltzingmouse Stamps, but that's not required to participate in the challenges or to win a prize. We will offer a prize at least once a month, but we'll keep you guessing as to when!
Prizes will be awarded randomly, but if you are chosen and you've used Waltzingmouse Stamps, you'll receive a bonus prize! Plus, three people will receive a Top 3 award each week, with a blinkie to proudly display on their blogs.

So get your sketch card created and add it to Mr. Linky over at the WMS Challenge blog so we can all see it! If you post to Split Coast - please use WMSC1 in your keywords!
