Thanks Card - Sketchbook Saturday Challenge

I love the sketches from the Sketchbook Saturday Challenge site but this is the first one I have ever tried. I guess they always seemed really intimidating to me. Once again I really felt like using Flirty paper today - maybe knowing that the paper is going to be gone shortly has something to do with it and I have a ton of it left! 

I loved the opportunity to cluster items on this card - that is one of my favourite techniques. I am always in need of thank you cards so this was a perfect time to add one more to my collection. 

Products used are Close To My Heart unless otherwise noted. 

Paper: Flirty Paper Pack, Colonial White Cardstock, New England Ivy Cardstock
Stamps: Love Blooms, Thank You (ret.) 
Inks: Black Pigment Ink, New England Ivy
Accessories: Art Philosophy Cartridge, Cotton Candy Markers, Alcohol Blending Pen, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (not CTMH), Silver Shimmer Trim, Slate Mini-Medley Accent Collection, Autumn Lane Assortment, Boutique Assortment, Floret Paper Shapes, Sparkles Flourishes, Bitty Sparkles, Foam Tape

This is just beautiful, Alyson! The sketch is beautiful, and you've done wonders with it! I have a few weeks "off" now, so I hope to visit a lot more often!
