Sketch Challenge 209 - Hello Friend

Well, this is my second post for today and my last post for 2008.
Since I am home all week, I am trying to do all of the SCS challenges this week. Just for fun (what else). During my regular life, I never seem to be able to get them done (actually I think it is really because I spend so much time blog surfing!! )
I pulled out a few Papertrey Ink stamps, paper, and ink to create this card based on Roxie's sketch.
I started out making the focal image panel (4). I stamped the flowers and stems first. Then, on a scrap of white cardstock, I stamped the humming bird and cut him out. I adheared him to the panel and then matted this on some coordinating cardstock. Next, I created the background panel (2) using Guide Lines. This set is amazing for making beautiful backgrounds that totally match your focal image. Finally, I created the third element where I placed my sentiment.
This took me a while to actually get pulled together. It didn't help that I started out with an increadible idea for a card using one of my smARTwork stamps...but it wouldn't "fit" into the layout once I was done. But you will definately be seeing that attempt on another card in the coming days!!
Supplies: Stamps - Guide Lines, Birds of a Feather (Papertrey Ink); Ink-Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, Spring Moss, Aqua Mist (Papertrey Ink); Paper-Kraft, Select White, Spring Moss (Papertrey Ink); Other-square blue rhinstone, paper piercer and mat.
Thanks for dropping in. I'm off to see what everyone else did with this layout!

Beautiful Donelda, I love how the bird extends past the image piece!

Nice job, and I also like the way the bird is outside of the box. Good luck getting all of those sketches done. ;) Kel
