SC171 Spring Song


Okay - this is not the best picture I have taken...
I had to take the photo's in my closet where I have the best light at this hour....

It's late and I can't sleep again - been having problems for a month or so....

It's so quite around here that I decided to stamp a bit....to my surprise the Sketch Challenge was already posted and I've jumped right on it!!!

Wasn't sure what to do, so I grabbed my catalog for inspiration and started looking at the images I could use.....and then I've found the "Spring Song" Set on Page 103. Plus it comes with the perfect card to case....Page 102!!!

The card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2.

I have used Kraft CS as my base and stamped it with Close to Cocoa. The BG Stamp I have used
is "Sanded". Then I have punched out my scalloped Nesti placing it towards the side to create the oval image that's required for the Challenge.

The *Bird* image is from the "Spring Song" Set. I have stamped it Chocolate Chip onto a Very Vanilla CS. Then I've colored it with Bordering Blue, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive and placed it behind the punched out oval template. I've stamped the sentiment from this Set on the right hand corner also using Chocolate Chip Ink.

I've added some Copper Brads and a Ribbon Slider from the SU Hodgepodge Hardware Collection. The Ribbon is from Michael's. ~TFL~
