Here's the sketch we're working with....

Hi Melissa, I love your card we both used the same image and both cards are so totally different. I love the colours you have used. Yes when I was making my card I was thinking of flying through the sky wouldn't that be a wonderful feeling looking down on everyone and watching what they are up too.
Take care and have a great week.
