Beate's Weekend Sketch #28

Now that my month of sketches is over, I am excited to be able to do some other sketches. And Beate's Weekend Sketch is always a great time!

And of course I couldn't wait to play with my CHF set Pretty Birds- a gift from SWEET Lori!

My bird is paper pieced because as Lori pointed out to me how easily Kim Hughes designs are to cut out, mask or paper piece. SO easy! And Kevin suggested mounting all of the papers to one corner. I like the effect!

Card Recipe:
Stamps~ CHF Pretty Birds, SU Paisley
Ink~ Pumpkin, Basic Brown, Celery
Paper~ Shimmery White, Soft Sky, Pumpkin, Celery, Provo Craft DP
Accessories~ Circle and scalloped Circle Punches, Blender pen, sponge, Paper Piercing tool

Another great sketch from Beate!
Have a great weekend, friends!
