My First Gypsy Card

My hubby bought me a Gypsy for Christmas.  Can you say happy dance!!!!  I was thrilled and wanted to wait to share the good news with all of you until I had a project to showcase.  I must say it was a little tricky for me to figure out at first, but thanks to You Tube and the awesome customer service rep. at Provo Craft I am doing well now. 
I was so excited to see the sketch challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas.  I've never done a sketch challenge so I thought this would be a great time.  I knew I wanted to use my gypsy to make the three circle at the bottom but I wanted them to be holes with a designer paper behind it.  So this is my first sketch/gypsy card.  Drumroll please.

The first picture shows the sparkly blue paper better.  So what do you think?  Me likey!  I'm so happy with it.  It came out better than I thought.  I was able to use my Martha Stewart punch and Scrappy Moms stamps.  I think I'm going to stamp a Happy Birthday sentiment inside.  So there you have my very first sketch/gypsy card. 
If you have any gypsy tips please leave a comment I would love to learn more.
