Makeesha's Sketch Challenge...my first one

Well, isn't this just so exciting. I have been following Makeesha's blog for a little while (it is fabulous-click here to take a look ) and I thought it was high time that I participated in one of her challenges.
This one is a sketch challenge, which I have never done before, so I have been thinking about it for a couple of days. In the end I thought stop wathcing this trashy TV show, sit at your table and see what happens, and I have to say that I found this one easier than the color challenges that I usually do. Anyway, here is my card:
I used the 'Live Your Dream' stamp set and the sentiment is from occasional greetings. The colors are very vanilla, blue bayou, soft sky & wild wasabi, a touch of cameo coral as well as some dsp from the new mini, and also an array of punches. And, whilst I am looking forward to a new catty in April, I will so miss these 'in colors' when they go :(
