PSC08 Chirp Up

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I know I did.  I spent the time with my extended family and a cousin from out of state.  It is our big family celebration of the year.

I was glad though to get back to some of my regular stuff - like making cards.  This week on the Perfect Sentiments Challenge blog, the challenge was: create a card the reflects a sentiment of encouragement. The Twist: use the following sketch as inspiration for the design of your card. Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch to make it work for you as long as we can still see the sketch in your card somewhere.  

 I really like working with sketches to see what I can do with them, but this time I pretty much kept to the image shown above.  So here it is.
The card base is SU Tempting Turquoise as well as the scalloped circle mat for the image.  The image was stamped on Copic blending paper with Memento Black.  The image if from the Retired SU stamp set Very Punny.  The dp, lace flowers and brads are all from my stash. 

The Copics I used are:  B91, B93; BG000, BG01; E23; Y11, Y13, Y15; and W0.  That's it.  Pretty simple this week.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my work.  I really appreciate your time and your comments.
