Hello friends! I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful week!
Today I had the pleasure of playing along with the SCS sketch challenge. I love sketches! I figure they save a lot of the time I usually spend trying to decide on a layout for my card!
I used some of the gorgeous papers from Our Daily Bread designs newly released Christmas Paper Collection 2013 for my vertical panels. I also used an older set Sing for Joy along with the custom Cardinal Die that cuts this image out, and the sentiment is from a set to be released Nov. 1 called Christmas Pattern Ornaments. I used a Darice embossing folder for my background, and a Cuttlebug ef to mat my bird. I sponged all the layers with a combination of Distress Inks. The image itself is stamped with Memento and colored with Copics, and cutting it out with the custom die is a joy! So quick!!! My card base is Always Artichoke. The background is vanilla, heavily sponged for a warmer tone.
That's it for me today! I hope you are singing for joy in the Lord, and I hope you'll stop by on Nov. 1 to see all the goodies coming your way from Our Daily Bread designs! Hope to see you then!
