Beate's WSC63


I had a little time today and decided to try to jump in on Beate's week-end sketch challenge. I used a new stamp that I love by Inkadinkadoo. I'm still loving the papers in Basic Grey's "Mellow", so I used that for the main background paper. The sentiment is from Sweet and Sassy. The main CS is Riding Hood Red and the green is Kiwi Kiss, both from SU's new In-Colors for 2008. I embossed the Kiwi Kiss with my Divine Swirl Embossing Folder for my CB. I stamped the birds in Riding Hood Red and I sponged the birds in Certain Celery while it was still nested in my Nestie. The Zig zag borders are punched with my Martha Steward border punch. From a distance, it looks kind of Christmas-y. Thanks for looking. I do enjoy sketch challenges so this was fun for me.

Wow, I love this color combination! And the stamp goes incredibly well with the background paper. I love how your Certain Celery is embossed on the left-hand side and then you added a little border on the right - that little element adds a whole lot!
This card brightened my day - keep it up, KrB!

This Basic Grey paper is so versatile. I love the one you chose for this card. It goes so well with everything else so nicely. Try to stay warm. I know you are a little cooler than we are down here. We got a puppy in April when it was warm. I didn't think about walking him first thing in the morning and last thing at nigt when it is cold. Now I have to walk him before bed with a blanket around me. LOL.
