Sketch Challenge, and busy card!!

This card is for the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers and for Allison's Suggestive Sunday challenge - not colouring an image you would normally colour!

A lot going on here in this card, I couldn't stop myself from stamping so I think I overdid it a wee bit!!

I used the Cornish Heritage Farms Open Plaid Backgrounder for my card base on Papertrey Ink Stampers Select white cardstock and I coloured copics over top for a coloured plaid.

Then I stamped Cornish Heritage Farms Leaves #3 backgrounder on top of white cardstock for the top panel and on the back of Chatterbox Greenhouse Olive plaid DP for the bottom panel.

Then I stamped Kim Hughes tree limb from the Pretty Birds stamp set on the top panel and tied a Papertrey Ink ribbon through it.

I stamped the nest on the Chatterbox DP and cut it out and popped it up and stamped the bird on DCWV boys Nursery DP and cut it out and popped it up.

I stamped the bird house, tree limb, nest, bird and the sentiment in 'Dark Brown' ColorBox Fluid Chalk Inkpad.

I sewed around both panels and added Autumn Leaves buttons in a funky little grouping!

I golfed today and actually it wasn't too ugly. There is a lot of water where I golf and of course I had to donate a couple of balls to the pond. It seems like a very nice thing to do. Yeh right..... such is golf.


  1. Very cute!! I love all the patterns and buttons!

  2. This is amazing Bonnie...paper piecing is the way to go for this challenge. I love the sketch and the buttons! Thanks for playing!
