Moxie's Square Sketch Challenge

Moxie Fab World is posting a new sketch challenge each day this week from the new Card Ideas for Paper Crafters magazine and you have until the 19th of September to upload your projects.  I hope to be able to at least do one card for each sketch, today I have chosen the square sketch by Kim Kesti:
Such a great sketch and not too difficult right.

So there I was in my craft room last night feeling very proud of myself that I was going to be able to combine two challenges, this one and the Lawn Fawn One Layer challenge!  And here I am now, having just discovered that the LF challenge closed last night!  Oh well, c'est la vie!  Nevertheless, here is my card:
Paper: PTI cardstock
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Fly Free; Critters in the Forest; Blissful Botanicals; Sophie's Sentiments)
Other: Black liner

Can you believe that so many stamp sets went into one little card!  Nothing spectacular, but I like the clean and fun style!  Those images by Lawn Fawn are really just fun to work with.  Let's hope I don't miss the cut off for the next challenge which should be posted HERE on Monday.  I particularly like the Blissful Botanicals set because it's a great filler set with lots of images that you can just add to other images.  In this case I masked the tree trunk a little in order to stamp those leaves on the right hand side.  Love that birdies eyelashes!

Have a fantastic day!  My list of cards I need to make has now grown exponentially so hopefully I can make one or two today!
