Just Us Girls Sketch Challenge #239

I am so very excited and proud to be on the Design Team, as a guest, for the month of May, at Just Us Girls.  This has been a dream, and now, it is a reality.  I am so psyched, and that is a good thing. 
Since retiring 2 years ago, I have been able to become better at making the cards that I love to do.  It is such an fun time in my life and now I am joining this team of fabulous team members.  I am humbled and honored.  So here we go............!
This is a sketch week, and here is the sketch.  It is a simple one, you can turn it and make it your own.  Lets see what you will do with it.  I want to encourage you all to join in the fun.  You get better by seeing what others can do, and participating in the challenges. 
Here is my card.
