Every week, I watched their simply irresistible challenges gain ever more poularity, and now there's rarely a stamper that I know, who wouldn't play along at least once! With their beautiful sketches, I certainly understand - check the one below, if you don't believe me!
FTL team kicks off the celebration with a brand new layout, that you're going to fall to... :)
Below you can see the full list of participanting designers. I hope you'll visit each one of them, because I know that you'll get boat-loads of inspiration on the way. These gals are AMAZING!!
Now, there is no set up order for this blog hop. The list below is sorted alphabetically, and it doesn't mean that you need to follow it. As soon as you pay all of the girls a visit, that's fine! (make sure that you leave a little love on the way!!)

When you're finished, go to the Clean and Simple blog: http://cleanandsimplestamping.blogspot.com/2010/07/100th-sketch-blog-hop.htmland link your own creation there, based on the anniversary sketch. I hope you'll join in the fun of creating!
And here's how I interpreted the layout... I meant to stick to the general arrangement of the elements, but ended up with this instead... lol
I lowered the ribbon line, and resigned from scallops at the bottom, replacing them with a more low-key border. There was something undone about the finished card, so I decided to pop up a part of the sentiment. How did it work?
Supplies: cardstock: Quill; paper: Basic Grey; stamp: Prima, Flourishes; ink: Versa Color (Bark); glitter: Reeves; ric-rac: Stampin' Up!; rhinestones: Kaisercraft
I used the colours of Embellish Ric Rac Color Challenge,
and the card also goes to Card Style Classy and Elegant Challenge in the Moxie Fab World :)
Thank you so much for 'checking me out', happy hopping!
