3 Clover Thursday Challenge #1

Welcome to 3 Clover Thursday Challenge #1

Thanks for coming by today for our first challenge!
I hope that you will participate and share your creation with us by uploading to your blog or SCS and leaving a link with Mr. Linky below. If you upload to SCS please use 3CTC1 in your title so that we can find you easily by searching.

*********If you do participate this first week and leave us a link by next Wednesday (2/25) I will put your name in for a random drawing for some surprise blog candy!
Just to get things going this first week!**********

Since so many love sketch challenges I decided that this first week we will do a sketch all you have to do is fill in the blanks!

I learned something this week....I am an idiot. :P
Often if I am blog surfing or checking out cards on SCS I will see a card that has a great layout. So I will open up my Microsoft paint and recreate the layout. I have found that if I save the actual photo of the card, I am too influenced by that actual card when trying to use the layout. SO that is how I got this sketch. A lovely card caught my eye and I used the layout.
Then I passed it on to the "inspiration team" and they quickly made some great cards.
Monday night I was feeling a little lost and thought I would check out some of the recent sketch challenges on SCS....GASP! The recent sketch is just like the one above!!! So the person who insprired my layout was using the SCS sketch challenge! (it was not noted on there blog)
I had already given the sketch to the girls and several had already made cards for today using it. So I just want to come clean. Please forgive me...I am new at this. And we are back to I am an idiot! Doh! Fear not, next week we will not run into it is not a sketch.

I split the talent up into two teams that will alternate weeks. I did not want to overly impose on these talented ladies. However, I have also invited them to participate in their off weeks if they feel like it. Some weeks we may have more or less. Inspiring you this week is (you can click on their names to link over to their blogs):
