Spring Bird

Happy Wednesday! I'm hoping that the progression into April brings more signs of spring - like warmer weather and birds singing.  So in honor of that hope, I bring you this card today as inspiration for the new challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

Our sketch for the challenge this week is a blast from the past and one of my favorites actually. It was featured in week 219 at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and drawn up by our own talented Sally.

Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps and we all love to create with these wonderfully fun images that Jodi dreams up.  The grand prize winner of the challenge will receive 7 free Bugaboo digis of their choice - a super fantastic and generous prize.  Thanks Jodi for your sponsorship!

I chose this beautiful Spring Bird image from Bugaboo. It's new this year and I just love this sweet thing. It was colored with Copic markers and I added some sparkle with a glitter pen by tracing the outlines of the vines and the bird. I just love the patterns and colors here which feel very spring-like.

Now stop on by Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 to see the fun cards our team is showing to inspire you this week using Bugaboo Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by!
