Birdie On A Wire

Well my card today with its sunny colors was intended as a sign of hope that Spring (and all the chirping birdies with it) was eminent. Apparently not so, as we are getting a dump of snow today upward of six inches. Sigh! I've had enough winter at this point and will continue to hope for signs of Spring beyond creating it on cards!

The card was created for the new challenge starting today at Sweet Sketch Wednesday with our sponsor Doodle Pantry.

Here's the fantastic sketch to follow for the challenge. I just love the "fishtails" hanging there. This is now one of my favorite sketches that Sally has developed - I'll be using it again!

We're so lucky to be sponsored by Laurie Wilson at Doodle Pantry this week. Her whimsical characters, beautiful and realistic flowers, and majestic scene images make such wonderful cards. My favorites in her collection are those silly ants and the adorable birdies!  The grand prize winner of challenge will receive a $10 gift certificate to Doodle Pantry.  Thanks Laurie for your generous sponsorship of Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

Doesn't this sweet birdie just brighten your day? It's called Birdie On A Wire and I just loved coloring him with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol for blending the colors. I like the softer look that the pencils create and it was fun to bring them out again.  The papers I used are from Lawn Fawn's Pink Lemonade collection.

To see more images from Doodle Pantry, visit us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday where the design divas have created the most wonderful cards with the digis and the sketch for this week's challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh Sharon I do love your card and those wonderful bright colours and this is such a cute image and those button embellishments are the perfect finishing touch to this card. Take care and have a lovely week. We're having a storm here at present it was a cyclone call Lusi but has been down graded.
