Gentle thoughts of you

Another sketch challenge card. You know you all can join in on the sketch challenge. I would really love to see what you do. Just leave a comment here with this posting and leave link to you card, be it on your blog or on SCS.

Ok with that said, here is my card. Anyone remember the set Garden Collage? I just love that set so spring time to me. So I pick that set to work with for this sketch.

Garden Collage

Bashful Blue, Pixie Pink, Night of Navy, Whisper White Card stock

Black Ink Pad

Versamark Pad

2 Scalloped Punches

Rose and Night of Navy Ribbon

First off I stamped my background of the Soft Swirls ( retired ) in Versamark on the Bashful Blue main card.

Cut y our Pixie Pink card stock 5x3 and stamp with versamark. I used a retired stamp set for this too. It has little butterflies and dots on it. Don't remember the name.

Stamped my image of the bird on Whisper White card stock, punched out. Colored in with chalks. Shaded a little darker on the edges with the chalk to make it stand out more.

Punched out another scalloped circle slightly larger in Night of Navy card stock. With my white gel pen I put dots around the edges in each scallop.

Mounted the bird piece to the Night of Navy.

Mount the Pixie Pink onto the Bashful Blue. Add your ribbon. I used two colors and layered them one upon the other. Then mounted the Scalloped pieces to the card.

Stamped my verse "Gentle thoughts of you."

We had such a beautiful day in MN today. We was close to 40 degree's which for this time of year is not normal. But, we enjoyed having it. I made it to the post office to mail out a PIF ( Pay it forward ).
My ears are feeling better today so thought I would stamp tonight. I hope I got it in, in time for it to come to your mail boxes tomorrow.
