Paper Smooches  Designer Drafts Sketch Challenge!!  =)
I was so excited about being able to play with the sketch this week!! I wanted to make a card to Congratulate a cousin on getting a Dream Job!! So I wanted to make it fit her personality and she loveS birds and nature so I decided I would try my hand at stamping a leaf background pattern using the Leafy Greens Stamp set!! I used the color palette from the ColourQ Challenge #180!!

I did some second generation stamping too for a fun layered look!! I then stamped the branch from the Whimsical Stamp set!! I had to mask it to make it long enough to fit across the front of  the card and then I stamped some extra leaves to add to the branches!!  I die cut a Duo Die 1 frame and layered the branch so it was coming out from the inside of the frame!! I then added foam to the center of the frame and placed the frame center over the top to pop it up alittle bit!! I added a line for the top half of the branch and then popped up the birds that were stamped from the whimsical stamp set!! I colored them with copic markers and then fussy cut them out!!  The sentiment was stamped from the Salutations Stamp set and I wanted it to look like a speech bubble so I stamped it and then added the little dots from the Leafy Greens Stamp Set for the speech bubble dots!! I LOVE the way it turned out and I know my cousin will LOVE it!!  Here are some pictures of my finished card!! Don't forget to check out all of the inspiration shared by the other crafters who are playing along with this weeks challenge you will LOVE all of the creative creations!!  =)
