Bird- ay Wishes

Hello happy Friday everyone!

Finally I managed to finish another card that I can share with you. Lately I can't seem to be able to finish them without taking a couple of days!! Does it happen to you as well??

Today's card is done using one of the sketches there was for this week. BUT... I forgot which one ,and can't seem to find in anywhere!!! LOL . I used one of Whiff of Joy's latest images, they are cute.. obviously being designed by the wonderful Elisabeth Bell. Lovely set of images and sentiments.

EDITED TO READ: Suzanne and Kathy recognised the sketch for me, it's fantastic Dawn's sketch for Papertake Weekly!! Thank you girls.. you are THE BEST!!!!

The papers I used are Papermania, from the lovely A5 Regency paper pack. The polka dotted piece was in my left over stash. I coloured the image with Dstress inks and refillers, using watercolour paper. Finally I added some Fruit punch Stickles on her hair, and tried to make some designs on her dress with a white gel pen. But you should see my friend Lilian's work with designs on clothes.. she is AMAY-ZING!!

I distressed the papers with Aged Mahogany.. it gives them a warm effect, in my opinion.

Brads and red flowers are from my stash, even the lace. The Primas are from Roses on Paper Store. Wow.. what lovely flowers Summer has got!! Dewdrops are from her store as well, as also the Inks I used.

For the inside I stamped another image from the same set, the bird- house. This one was stamped on normal cardstock and coloured with Copics. I hope you like it and that you let me know what you think. I am very happy that you are here, and that you encourage me all the way.

Smiles and Happy weekend!

Thanks for looking

Love all your cards and this is no exception.

Rosette this is just gorgeous..every little detail. I do love what you did with her dress. I will have to check your friends blog so I can see her work with designs on clothes. That kind of thing always intrigues me, I hope to try it soon.
