Creative Sketches Inaugural Challenge!

I'm so excited to share in a brand-spankin' new challenge with you today! I am just one of 9 stampers taking part in Creative Sketches, a new design team who will be sharing challenges with you each Thursday. Today's challenge is the sketch shown here, but each week we will rotate between sketch, color, technique and additional challenges designed to help you get the most out of your creative time. We certainly hope to inspire you and hope you'll play along with us!

Today's card is quite simple and sticks to the sketch - hope that's not too boring for ya! ;)
The main sentiment and the additional line below the ribbon are actually part of the same stamp. Using a Stampin' Write marker allows you to isolate the portion you want to use for each area and just stamp what you need.  Definitely an "oldie but goody" kind of technique!
