March Sketch for The Craft's Meow


This is the sketch that Nina Brackett put together for the March sketch challenge over at The Craft's Meow and I decided to play along.  However, I really used some creative license here because something about that banner shape sticking out of the card just did not work for me!  Everybody else's creations look great but whenever I tried to see it in my mind's eye I just could not make it work. 

So, I apologise in advance, but here is my card which I had fun making and don't laugh, it took me way too long to put this together, about two and a half hours!  Yes, I can hear you saying, "I don't believe it", but it's true! First the colours, I just could not decide, and then that banner shape, bla, bla, bla....

Paper: cardstock (PTI); patterned paper (Lawn Fawn)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; CTMH (Creme Brulee); Copics
Stamps: Lovely Birds (TCM)
Other: Pearls (Kaisercraft); Spellbinders dies; EK Success Border punch; dimensional squares

I'm still happy with the outcome.  I popped up the oval piece as well as the birds.  I adore those little birds.  That entire set is really quite beautiful.

It's 11pm here, probably time to go to bed.  Looking forward to working out with my gym buddy tomorrow, just hoping that my little princess is feeling better!

Wishing you a wonderful evening!
