It's Super Challenge Saturday!

Hi everyone! And a very happy Easter Eve Saturday to you. :D

Remember everything I was bragging about yesterday regarding this challenge? Well, this week's challenge is an awesome sketch by the one and only Maria Bell! Maria is so super talented and is on, like, 15000 Design Teams. LOL! HAHA! JK Maria! Seriously though, her work is everywhere, and with great reason. Hop over to her BLOG to see what all the fuss is about. And make sure your chair is comfy because you'll be over there for a loooooong time. ;)

Here is the sketch that Maria graciously loaned to us:

Adorable, right? So clean and sweet, but so full of possibilities! depends. Just a second while I make a quick note to self:
Dear Joni, Please don't ever choose anything with an oval shape. You own nothing that's oval - no nesties, no punches, and that dinner plate that you thought would work was waaaaay too big for the sketch.
Okay, I'm back, thanks for waiting. teehee! So here is my card:

Bad picture, right? It's because I took it at 1:15 this morning! HAHA! Sometime around 11:30 last night while I was on a Dunkin' Donuts mocha swirl iced latte high (I am sooo caffeine intolerant, but enjoyed one with Leslie while we played with our kiddos at the park), I realized that I had no clue what I was going to do with this sketch. I oohed and aaahed over it since Tuesday on Maria's blog!
I had this sweet Magnolia image and bench given to me in a SS swap. The sentiment is from one of the latest SAB SU sets and I thought it was perfect with her holding a heart in her hand. I used a ghost heart from my stash as an extra element.
So this is where YOU come in. ;) Please upload your sketch into SCS' gallery under BLOGC7. If you don't have a blog, feel free to email me a pic at and I will gladly post it for you.
Now go and check out Gabby's card HERE and Mel's card HERE. Beautiful, right? Maria will be our guest judge this week so make her proud!
Have a wonderful day everyone! I'll be back with some fun news!
*Love and Aloha*
