{Sweet Sketch Challenge #8} another little birdie told me . . .

Happy Wednesday! . . .



. . . and time for another terrific SWEET SKETCH challenge card!


Today I've used "A Little Birdie Told Me" by Stampin Up! I stamped the little chickadee in Versafine onyx black ink twice and colored and cut out one of the images to layer on top the other for dimension or "body". ;)


This fun designer paper is by Cosmo Cricket and it's teamed up with some luscious Cool Caribbean cardstock by Stampin Up. I got out my old pinking scissors for this card and did some zig zag stitching too. Really, there is a LOT you could do with this sketch, but I kept it fairly simple since my paper was "busy" enough!


I encourage you all to join in the FUN and participate in the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenges! If you need some inspiration, take a peak at the cards created by the design team. They are amazing!
