Good morning blogger buddies!   Happy Tuesday and welcome to my blog today.  Tuesday always brings another sketch over at Skipping Stones Design Blog.   We have a brand new sketch artist this month that I am really excited about.......Teri Anderson!!  I have been following her work as one of the Go To Gals for Papercrafts magazine for quite some time.  She seriously rocks, and I am very excited to have the opportunity to design to her sketches!  Lets get to the sketch for this week shall we?
LOVE IT!!  Sometimes I struggle with a sketch, but this one had me right from the start and I knew just how I wanted to tackle it.  I flipped the sketch for my take.  I also used a stamp set that we will be releasing later this month as a little sneak peak for you all......you seriously are going to love this set!!  Here is my card.

The bird, swirls, and sentiment are all 3 in the new soon to be released set....be sure to stay tuned to Skipping Stones this month as we will be having a blog hop to celebrate its release Audust 16th.   Anyway, I love kraft CS and had to use some on my card.  I also love white embossing on kraft so did the swirls in that.  I decided to stamp the bird on PTI Razzberry Fizz CS and cut her out....also enhanced her with a white gel pen to sorta tie things together.....and of course I had to throw in another of my favorite things...buttons.  I really like my little birdie..and isn't that sentiment nice too?
Hope you like!   Do not forget to hop on over to the SSD blog to see what the other Stamp Tramps have done.  Also we have some new Guest Designer this month:
