Sweet Robin — FMS389

It’s time for a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our hostess, Narelle Farrugia, is providing a sketch from the land down under.  She has a good one — I love a simple collage.  Take a look:

Since I still had the Free as a Bird stamp set on my desk and I needed to make a thank you card for someone who loves birds, it was an easy decision on what set to use.  I did some fussy cutting on this one and used an embossing folder.  Two things I don’t do very often, though I like them both.

I colored the robin (I don’t know if that’s what this bird was designed to be, but that’s how I tried to color it) with markers.  The background circle was sponged with some Balmy Blue ink .

I looped some Linen Thread behind the circle and added some Metallic Pearls as embellishments.

The more I play with this suite, which will be available in the new catalog in two weeks, the more I love it.  I love the sentiments and I love the images.  A double win!

We hope you’ll join us and make your own card using the sketch!  We love to see what you create as we browse the gallery each week.  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
