You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout or change it up a bit. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal. Let your imagination run wild! 

Amazing Life & Balloon Celebration Stamp Sets

Today's card was created using the Amazing Life (from the Occasions catalog) and Balloon Celebration (from the annual catalog) Stamp Sets.  The balloon from the Balloon Celebration stamp set is one of my all time favorites.  It doesn't look so cool in black and white but take a look at the fun balloons.
