Miss You

I recently discovered the Diva by Design blog where it's challenge #19 this week: "It's a sketch!"...just my thing! It's cute, it's sassy and instead of being uber-compliant, my card is a mirror image of the sketch. That's me being naughty! And guess what? I'm taking it a step further by combining it with another challenge...oh I'm bad! :-))  I've chosen "Thinking of You / Missing You" challenge #5 theme from Chocolate Coffee & Cards. I've put the 2 together and come up with this cheery little number:
The papers are from Basic Grey's "Sweet Threads" pack. The dies are from Spellbinders Fleur-de-Lis Squares set - probably my fave dies at the moment!
The focal image is sitting on foam tape.  
Minimal colouring with Promarkers on the bird and I pulled only colours found is the background papers: green, pink and orange. The little bird is from PolkaDoodle stamps. The sentiment is from Personal Impressions Round Tags set and I stamped it with Memento Rich Cocoa. 
I inked the edges of the sentiment label with TH's Antique Linen and a touch of Vintage Photo at the edges. As always, all the panels are stitched.
And here's the inside, nothing fancy. Plenty of room for a mushy message!

Don't forget to take a peek at some awesome cards over at Make It Monday and if you love Basic Grey then a pit-stop at Basic Grey Challenges is mandatory!

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by, and I'll see you at my next post!
