FMS55

FMS55 - LeAnne - 2

It’s a WOW Wednesday for me today, because this starts my first week as Guest Designer for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge!  This card was chosen for their anniversary challenge, so here I am with the first sketch of October! 

And here’s my card:

FMS55 - LeAnne

I hadn’t used this “chirp chirp tweet” image from Animal Talk, so I thought this was a perfect time to use it!  I used markers to color the image and used the fun Birds of a Feather DP for my backgrounds.  I loved the ribbon treatment that was on the swap card from my friend Carol, so I used it here as well!  Here is her swap:

I sure hope you’ll be able to play along with this fun sketch!  The elements shown will lend themselves to lots of fun ideas!  Be sure to check out what the other designers at Freshly Made Sketches did this week, including my guest designer teammate, Narelle

Congrats on your GD gig LeAnne! I don't know this stamp set yet but it's very cute. Love the birds just hanging around on the wire too - kind of like Cassidy hanging around in your spacious backyard! Cheers Narelle
