SCS Sketch Challenge #239

One more creation to share with you today and that is for today's SCS Sketch Challenge. This card too went together rather quickly due to having "pieces" & "parts" laying around in my craftroom that worked perfectly together to create a card. It's been a very good CLEAN UP SCRAPS day ... Yippee!!
I always enjoy doing sketch challenges and those over at Splitcoaststampers were my first. Roxie always comes up with great sketches and samples. Today's sketch is relatively simple but I think it can really pack a punch!! Here's what I did.






The base card is of Whisper White cardstock and my background panel was created last week for another project then I realized the shade of green was wrong so I sat it aside. It was created by running a Whisper White panel through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dot Embossing Folder then sponging with Garden Green, Really Rust & Old Olive inks. I then stamped the corners with this leafy image from the Hero Arts FRIENDS set and Versafine black ink then matted with Basic Black cardstock.
Panels 2a &2b are from a scrap of DCWV Old World and my main image panels were all in my Nestabilities (scalloped rectangle) "extras" box. The sentiment comes from the SU Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set and the bird on this panel is from an Inkadinkado set.
What a fun, fun creative day for me! I hope your day was fun & interesting too! Thanks for stopping by ... hope I didn't overload you with postings today but I'm always so anxious to share with you!!! Happy Day my friends!!
