Animals and a Sketch

Hi All,

Hope your Monday is off to a great start. I can't believe another week is under way and that it's already June! Time sure does fly! I had a chance to do some stamping this morning, so I headed straight for the challenge sites!

I made a card using the sketch from Friday Sketchers and the challenge themes of Animals and Insects at Just Magnolia and Animals at Simon Says Stamp. The sketch was unique and at first I wasn't sure I would be able to work with it, but I managed to figure it out! And then the animals challenge was tricky too as I wanted to use this cute Tilda image, but found some birds that I got from a swap, which I cut out and popped up on foam tape. I think they are Magnolia, but not positive. Now that covers all the challenges!

The papers are from a mat pack and the card stock is all SU!. The embellishments are white gel pen dots, silver brads, prima flowers, and felt flowers. The sentiment is from SU! Short and Sweet and the images were colored with Copics.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a great afternoon! Happy Stamping! :)
