Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #182

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  Spring has finally arrived in Canada and we are enjoying some beautiful weather!  Our trees our finally budding and the robins are singing their happy song!  Thankfully they sing outside my window early and not outside Jacob's!!!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week!  Our fabulous hostess is Rita Wright!  Rita is our resident colouring queen!  She does such an amazing job!  I think she should offer classes to the others...well, maybe just me!!!

Now, I kinda didn't have the sketch in front of me when I made my card.  I made that middle panel a little large and didn't offset it.  I also put the sentiment box on the wrong side.  I may get kicked of the design team for this one!!!!

Shortly before we went away I received this fun new stamp set from Reverse Confetti - The Tweet Life!  I love it!  The little birds are just so cute!  I have another little bird inside my card that I totally forgot to take a picture of!  I tried colouring these sweeties but unfortunately I do not possess the colouring gene and they looked TERRIBLE!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Grey, Early Espresso
DSP: Brights DSP Stack, Stacked with Love DSP Stack
Stamps: The Tweet Life (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Basic Black
Other:  The Tweet Life Confetti Cuts, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I really hope you get a chance to pop over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the amazing cards the Design Team has created for you!  We can't wait to see what you create this week!

Have an amazing day!
