My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Spring Birdhouse - SSS43

I've been creating SPRING cards lately in an attempt to ward off the winter Blahs. I'm really tired of all this snow. I shouldn't complain becasue it really is pretty to look at and I don't have to go out and drive in it.

Anyway, here is my card for the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge. If you've never tried a sketch challenge, you don't know what you're missing. Head on over and give us a try this week.

For my card I used a newly released Digi stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, called Spring Mailbox. I had to take the picture of my card at night rather than with natural light, so the colors are a little off. The bird really looks a weird shade of blue, but he's not.  The image was colored in with Copic Markers.
I had to turn the card 90° because I printed the image a little bigger then I wanted.

The designer papers, cardstock, ribbon and brads are from Close to my Heart.
The flower is scrunched up matching cardstock.

I added prisma glitter to the flowers and to the edges of the big scrunched flower.
The Hand Stitching around the card was done with matching embroidery floss.

Your card is so pretty, Nancy! Cute image, and beautiful coloring. Your flower is one of the prettiest I've ever seen --can you explain how you did it? I'd love to try one (and have it end up looking like yours).

Happy Valentine's Day!
