Challenge No.2, WOOHOO!!!

I am so excited to get to be the hostess of this weeks challenge. I have made it pretty simple for you!! This weeks challenge is a sketch challenge. Feel free to alter it slightly, but try to stay true to the sketch. If you need to, the small circle can be a different shape!!

I wasn't sure how to make the "model" of the sketch, but I got into my paint program and made it work!! Here is my sample!! Have fun and be sure when you post your picture to include the keywords GSGC02 so that we can all see your creations. Also, post a link to your card here if you do or do not have a blog!!

Thanks for playing and have a great day!! And remember, this challenge is open to anyone so please feel free to play along!!
