Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge - It's a Sketch!

Hi, everyone! Hope you're having a wonderful Tuesday... The sun is out in full force here today, and Lost is on tonight, so it's shaping up to be a wonderful day! :)

This card was created for this week's Jacksonbelle Embellishments Challenge. Our challenge this week is a sketch challenge, and I used Basic Grey's Kioshi line, as well as an image from the Pure Innocence My Basket of Eggs stamp set. I have a teeny tiny flower punch that I picked up from the $1 bin at Michaels forever ago, and finally put it to use today. She's normally holding a basket of eggs, but I thought it would be cute for her to be holding a bunch of flowers instead. :)
