Birds of Spring

I seen Beate's Sketch Challenge for the weekend and am really into the long card lately so I had to try it. I think it turned out rather well, even though things look crocked on it they are not. Just my scanner playing games on me. Also my friend Chrissy is having a challenge on her blog. So I combined the both of them in this card. So please check them both out.
Today was a beautiful day in Central MN, so this was the perfect day for making this card. I hope you like it as well as I do.
Supplies needed:
Bashful Blue cut at 8x9 and one cut at 1 1/2 x 6 1/4
Brilliant Blue cut at 2 1/2 x 8 1/2 and one cut at 1 3/4 x 6 1/2
Plaid Paper was cut at 2 1/4 x 8 1/4
Both SU Oval Punches punch one in Bashful Blue and one in Brilliant Blue
Brilliant Blue Ribbon
3 SU Bashful Blue Buttons
Any background stamp
Bashful Blue Ink Pad
Scalloped Square Punch
Glossy White Card Stock
Markers and Blender Pens
Seasonal Birds Stamp Set (Retired)

I stamped the main card 8 x 9 with a little butterfly background stamp in the Bashful Blue ink. Layered my plaid on my largest piece of Brilliant Blue.
Punched out my 3 glossy white scalloped squares and stamped them with the Seasonal Birds stamp set in Black. Colored them in using blender pens and markers.
Layered them on my Bashful Blue piece that is 1 1/2 x 6 1/4. Leave an area on the bottom for adding ribbon. Add your ribbon on the bottom of the piece. I used some glue to hold it in place on the back so it was easier to tie. On the ribbon after I got my knot tied I weaved on the oval punches with the saying on it to the ribbon. Then finished my bow.
Now with the Brilliant Blue piece that is 1 3/4 x 6 1/2. Add to the main card. Add buttons and your done.
With the larger Brilliant Blue piece add the plaid paper. Layer this one the main card. Then layer the Imaged piece on the card follow the sketch. Then add your buttons.
And your card is done.
Hope you enjoy the card and sketch for today I know I sure did.
