The next round of Ulitmate Cardmakers Showdown!

It's the third week of 2 Sketches 4 You cardmakers showdown!! This week there are 20 cardmakers hoping to move into 10 spots. The competition is amazing you need to check out every one, they have all outdone themselves with beautiful works of art!
Here is look at the sketch we used this week

should be easy enough right?? Well, let me tell you that I struggled and struggled. Ihad an idea in my head and did my best to transform it into reality :) you crafters know how hard that can be at times! Since I'm a stamper, I really wanted to incorporate stamping into my card so I sat and looked through all my stamps trying to get some added inspiration for my card. I ended up using two of my favorite companies, Cosmo Cricket papers and Unity Stamp Company.
