Blogger's Challenge Sketch!

Happy Friday Friends! I'm sorry that my posts have been so sporatic lately. My summer cold kicked me to the curb!! I have a lot of commenting to catch up on, but I'm feeling so much better. I can't wait to see what everyone has been up to lately!

Today's card is for this week's Blogger's Challenge. Lisa gave us this fantastic sketch to work with. Of course, I had to change the panels around...lol! When I stamped my sentiment the first time, it turned out terribly, so I flipped things around to hide my mistake. If you'd like to play along with the sketch, you can find all of the details here.

I picked up this new Inky Antics set at Right at Home Scrapbooking store last night. I was there for Joanne Basile's My Favorite Things class and I treated myself to a couple of the new TCP CutUps, this new IA set, and a few new Copic Markers. This sweet little bird is colored up with BG10, BG53, E23, R27, R29, R59, YR16, YR30, and the Colorless Blender. The blue background paper is from The Girls' Paperie and the red polka dotted paper is from Memory Box. I used Papertrey Ink Kraft as well. The circles were made with the Classic Circle and Lacey Circle Nesties. I finished things off with a pearl flourish and some machine stitching.

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit. Have a beautiful weekend! Until next time...Toodles! :D
