Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge

I always like doing sketch challenges.  It gives me a starting point.  For today's card I started with this sketch:

 I hope you can see the folding I did on the front of the card.  I was going to just score the paper to give it the vertical lines in the sketch but then I saw quite a few people had already done that so I went for a little different look.
I used the same shiny, wavy turquoise paper for the bottom strip and the oval at the top.  Depending on how the light hits the paper, sometimes it looks more green than blue.
The digi image is a new one from Pattie Gomez who is 
currently hostessing a Spring Blog Hop at  
 I'll be entering this card in the following:

  2. Hi, Debi! WONDERFUL idea to pleat your cardstock like that, providing dimension and the illusion of lines. I LOVE your idea. It would look good on just about any card, wouldn't it? Very clever. Very sweet kitty card, and great interpretation of the sketch, too! hugs, de
