A.R.T. #10 Challenge

Welcome Everyone!
Today, I have a creation for the new challenge at 
Today's theme is a sketch (see below) . . .
If you follow my blog, you will know that CAS is NOT my usual style!  I lean more towards creations using lots of layers & embellishments.  BUT, I'm thankful for the opportunity to be inspired to create a card of the CAS (clean and simple) style and must admit I'm very happy with the outcome!  
What do YOU think?

You know, I think I'll make a few more of this style to add to my craft show collection.
It's good to have variety!

I hope you'll join in our challenge this week and if you are in need of inspiration, be sure to pop on over to the A.R.T. Challenge Blog and check out what my team mates have created.  These ladies continue to inspire me from week to week.
