Inspiration Challenge and Weekend Sketch Challenge all in one!

On Saturdays over at SplitCoast Stampers, the challenge is to be inspired. The hostess usually picks a site with lots of fun stuff to look at and we take our inspiration from there.

This week, this was my inspiration for this:


I stamped the main image in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White and coloured it using a combination of Tombo, SU! and Copic markers. I cut around the image and matted it on a piece of Soft Sky DSP (oh how I miss that colour!)

The little birdie was also stamped in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White. I then cut him out using my Coluzzle and matted him on a piece of Chocolate Chip cut using my Quickutz nesting flowers and my brand spanking new Big Shot - WOOHOO!!

The card base is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 Whisper White. The next layer is 4 X 5 1/4 Chocolate Chip and the next is 3 3/4 X 5 piece of Sahara Sand DSP from the SAB catalogue.

Inside, I stamped the flower vases from the same set and the sentiment "You make me smile". I gave the card to my hubby for "anniversary".

What do you think?
