Bird Thinking of You Card

Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great week. Mine went pretty fast and that is always a good thing. My card today was made for a sketch challenge at Created With Love Challenges. I love sketch challenges, it helps take the guess work out of where to start with your card design. This Bird Thinking of You card was made combining the sketch and colours from the weekly ColourQ challenge. I also used polka dotted paper to be included in the Use Your Stuff challenge. Three is usually my limit on combining challenges, any more than that and I'm never happy with the results. I hope you will play along at Created With Love Challenges!!! This week is a triple challenge week. Make sure you check out the other two challenges:

Bird Thinking of You Card Supplies:
  • Paper: White card stock, gumball green and basic gray card stock by Stampin' Up! / tropical blue and tan card stock by The Paper Studio / and polka dot patterned paper by My Mind's Eye.
