SFYTT-I(Heart)2 Stamp Sketch Challenge

Just got home from a was a gorgeous day here!! I signed into my blog and found out I won on the Stamps and Smiles Blog Hop last night!! Wow!! I am sure pleased...I love their new releases and I cannot wait to make some cute cupcake cards. I love to colour!!!

This is the set I won! I LOVE the saying!!! I think it is going to be so much fun to glitter and paper piece and colour!! Thanks Jennifer and Suzy at Stamps and Smiles!
I decided to try the sketch challenge over at I(Heart)2Stamp. I really struggled with this one!
Tonight it finally came to me and I am happy with the results. My colours were Kraft (non-SU!), Artichoke and Cream. I used Basic Grey Wassail paper and some SU! Chocolate Chip fuzzy felt ribbon from Christmas. Used my new Martha Stewart branch punch to add some dimension. The bird is also MS and I found it in the clearance bin at Michaels. I coloured it with my warm gray copic marker and added glitter to the chest of the bird. The card is really soft and earthy...I think!!

Happy Stamping!!
