Good Saturday everyone! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend. I ran some errands then retreated to my crafty space to create this card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I had the bird and tag leftover from previous projects, so this went together very quickly. I cut out the leafy Bouquet Background die from Green Parakeet card stock. I had a follower recently tell me I was the queen of polka dots and stripes and yep...I used them again here! I love the patterned paper packs in all the stock colors at Ink to Paper. Each pack gives you two sided papers of plaids, polka dots and stripes!
Obviously I flipped the sketch to a vertical rather than horizontal orientation. The leaves extend beyond the card base so I'll have to use a slightly larger envelope than an A2 size. I color blended the bird with brushes and gently lifted up the wing "feathers" to give it dimension.
