Tweet-ies Sketch

This week's Jacksonbelle Embellishments Challenge is to use this fabulous sketch that Lynda came up with. You do know I love sketch challenges right ;) Please play along with us. We would love to see your creations, so when uploading to SCS please use the code JBE053!! Don't forget - you have just a few more days to place your presale orders for the crocheted flowers!


Like I have mentioned before, I love sketch challenges. They are the perfect springboard for getting a card started. I decided to use up a scrap of this fabulous Pink Paislee Flower Beds paper that I had left over from this card. I just love the rich color tones and it was perfect for using as the top panel. I embossed the Ocean Tides' panel with the Forest Branches folder. This is one of my favorite Cuttlebug Folders! It gives your paper such a unique, but slight texture. I used this cute Tweet-ies image and Debbie just sent me (thanks sweetie). It's colored in with Copics, then went over all of the red parts with Royal Red Shimmerz. To the wheels, I added some Basic Grey Porcelain Glazed brads! I love the silver lining around the brad. It really makes it pop and stand out more. The entire image is raised with a dimensional. So what are you waiting for?? We've already supplied you with the layout, so pick out some supplies and get to stampin'. Don't forget to check out what the rest of the design team came up with:
