Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

Time for another wonderful sketch from Stamping 411. I'm so happy that it's Friday, and with the holidays behind us, I feel like I had a pretty productive week 🙂 I got lots of swaps done, some special projects done, and even got to play along in a couple of challenges!

Here's the sketch for this week:


And here's my card:

Okay, I have to tell you that I really feel like I've cheaped out on this card…because all of the work was done by this fun dsp!! I just added a little texture, sponging, ribbon and brads and voila I was done!!

I made a square card this week, because I wanted to fit all of the bird & nest. I used Early Espresso & Crumb Cake card stock, along with Old Olive ribbon. The "for you" came from "Just for You" in the Teeny Tiny Wishes set, I stamped it on a scrap of the dsp and punched it with the mini tag punch. I used the new Framed Tulips embossing folder on just the top & bottom of the card, then sponged it with Early Espresso ink. I added a few Vintage Trinkets brads, and done!

We had so many entries last week, boy it is so tough for us to pick the top 5!! We love seeing everyone's creations, I hope you'll play along this week!!

Thanks for stopping by!

I told Robin, if you dont like the weather here, wait a minute, it will change! I love what you did with this designer paper. Great job with the ribbon and all the little details.. ((((hugs)))
