Have you ever heard of other card makers using sketches? 
BUT just can not figure out where to begin??

Well, here is my thoughts... from the beginning.

I love OWH sketches, there is a new one every week, they come out on Sunday.
I donate all my unused cards to them, for the soldiers. I have a badge on my sidebar.
Anyway, So, the first thing I do is pick a theme.  
Continuing with my graduation theme from the weekend.

Then, I look at the shapes on the sketch, NO you do not have to be exact.  
I like the three "strips" here the first thing I thought of was ribbon. 
Now, what can I do with the rectangles....HUMM??   Again, the first thing that popped into my head was Apothecary accents, the long piece.

Now into the craft room I went.  
Picking colors, ribbon and of course little pretties too.
Ohhhh the juices are flowing now... The sentiment was easy, I have been looking for a reason to use this one:

Here is my version.. can you see the sketch??

The new In Color ribbon became my "strips".

and the sentiment fit perfectly in the 6th from the smallest circle framelit.

The inside was just left simple with three new punch flower from the new Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.
Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss look just amazing together.

 I do hope that this little step by step helped.  Any questions just email me.  I will do my best to help!
Have a Great day getting Crafty!!
