Challenge -- Sketch

I used an American Art Stamp image with an MFP sentiment to make this card.  Frances gave us this fabulous sketch, so this card really went together by itself.  AND....I was so excited that some K and Co. brads left over from last year just finished off this card perfectly.....well, at least in my!!! sure to check out the other Crazies and see what they are up to.....
