Flowers and songbirds for Sketch #28

This week I really enjoyed making my card for my sketch featured on Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  Incase you are new to following my blog, my bestie Darla Haverstock, and myself have a Sketch Challenge where every Monday morning we provide a new sketch to be played with.  On Wednesday's we post the Top 3 entrants from the previous week, and we post the Design Teams creations.  I create the sketches, along with some sketches provided by the members of the design team, and Darla does the digital work, she is my techie guru!

So this is the sketch for this week:

Here is my card for this sketch:

I started with the For Always paper, and used the technique direct ink to the paper, by taking my ink pad and swiping it over the paper I was able to die it Cotton Candy.  The sentiment is stamped with Black Ink on White Daisy CS, which is matted on a piece of Black CS.  The images are stamped with Cotton Candy in 2nd generation.  These images and the sentiment are from Hello Tweety(B1410).  The flower and leaves are from the retired stamp set Friendship Blessings (D1191).  This stamp set has outline stamps, and solid stamps, which create these beautiful flowers.  The outline is stamped in Hollyhock, and the solid is stamped in Cotton Candy.  The leaves are done the same way.  I've done them in 2 different tones.  Outlined in Topiary and solid stamped with Pear, and outlined with Pear, and solid stamped with Sweet Leaf.  I've added some Pink bling which is now retired  to dress it up some.

Here are some close-ups of the stamping and of the flowers.

So, don't forget to go and visit Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to see what our Design Team has created to inspire you!
