On to the good stuff...the sketch and my card!
 
A great sketch!



I had a lot of fun with the new sketch.  I went with a "new baby" theme.  I found the perfect paper to go with my little blue bird.  I actually put my Copic markers aside and pulled out my ink and used a rubber stamp and colored pencils and OMS for the image.  I am thoroughly enjoying the challenge of working with a card sketch.  I added some die cut leaves, a blue crocheted flower, a button and a little tag, too.  Lots of sweetness, just like a new baby!

Come on over to Cardabilities and check out all the other designs using this same sketch and play along with us!
