CPS Day 1 - You're the best

Card Positioning Systems is celebrating their 5th anniversary. Each day, for 15 days, one of their super talented designers picks her favorite sketch, which in itself seems like a difficult task since there are so many great sketches from which to choose. Then she makes a new card based on the sketch and posts it for all to enjoy. Everybody else who makes a card based on the sketch and links it to the CPS blog is entered to win a prize. For those that follow all 15 sketches, there is a drawing for an awesome prize package. I'm going to TRY to do all 15...they're already on day 9, and this is my card for day 1. Yes...number 1. But, I've actually made cards for days 1-5, so I'll be posting them over the next few days (when I'm not working on catching up. LOL). You can play along with the sketch here. Here is day 1, sketch #136:And now for the paper yummies. I made a square card instead of rectangular, but the rest of the elements are pretty true to the sketch. I got this stamp set by Mint Motif and couldn't wait to try it out!
I'm also playing along with the Lily Pad Cards Patterned Paper Challenge, presented by Simon Says Stamp, the Mismatched Challenge at 365 Cards, and the Anything Goes Challenge at Do You Stack Up?

Thanks for looking!
