Sweet and Sassy Sketch and more.

Hello Again Friends,

Another post today. Boy, I sure am working hard. LOL. This card was initially inspired by the Sketch over at the Sweet Shop Blog. And you also had to use a tag.
Then I kept finding all these great challenges that I wanted to try. They are:
Basic Grey Challenges: Basic Grey papers and Gingham

The Crafty Pad Blog: Photo inspired colors

Totally Gorjuss: Thinking Of You

Here is the card. I used a cute Bird...again. I just love birds right now.

I used lots of different items to make this card. So, to make it easier, I will list them.

Stamps: My Little Chickadee and a background stamp from Sweet & Sassy, Sentiment from My Sentiments Exactly

Ink: Chocolate Chip from SU, New Sprout and Lulu Lavender from Memento

CS: Pretty in Pink, Lavender Lace,Orchid Opulence, and Blush Blossom all from Stampin' Up

DP: Kioshi from Basic Grey

Flower Accent: Basic Grey

Edge Punch: SU

Tag: Sizzix

Gingham Ribbon

Here is a detail shot. You can see the Background stamp and the distressing on the tag more clearly.

And another detail to see the flower accent up close.

Okay, I should probably get some laundry done. Ohhh..doesn't that sound exciting??!! Well, it's a dirty job, but someone has to do it. I may go and make a few Christmas cards too.
