Happy Saturday Peeps!

Today I am trying out a new challenge, well new for me anyways. I do sketch challenges so much I wondered if I can even do a card with out one??? So I was surfing around a bit yesterday and saw this BEAUTY, by Karen Giron. She had made it for this week's color challenge at the Color Throwdown Blog. I so loved Karen's card so I wanted to try those colors myself. The colors are....light green, rust and burgundy.

Translated into SU colors, certainly celery, really rust and bravo burgundy. I cheated, well not really but I used the really rust just on my bird wing. The colors are really nice together.

The base of my card is certainly celery card stock and I followed it with some retired celery DS paper. I added a strip of bravo burgundy across the bottom that I had punched with the scallop edge punch. I used some certainly celery ribbon, from last years SAB bundle, across the burgundy strip. I cut out some whisper white with my label nesties and added the bird, brand and wing to it. The bird is bravo burgundy, the wing really rust and the branch/leaf is certainly celery.

Finally I used the "Hello Again" stamp set for the sentiment. I stamped it with bravo burgundy onto a scrap of celery card stock and used the curly label punch on one end. Edged it all around with burgundy ink and mounted it with a dimensional to the main panel.

Well, that is all from me for today, be sure and stop back by tomorrow for a very interesting Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!!!

Thanks so much and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!!!
