SC338....thinking of you

Happy Thursday peeps!! Hope you are having a great week so far.

Today I am sharing a card I made with the sketch challenge this week on splitcoaststampers. Cute simple sketch, just how I like them!!!

They had said in the sketch challenge thread to "Keep the partial circle almost as large as your card's height, if possible." I used my circle and scallop circle nesties to make my circle. To keep the circle almost as large as my card height I made my card 4-1/2 inch square.

I used crumb cake for my card base and then I followed that with some so saffron and then the DSP is from the Sunny Garden paper pack. I used poppy parade cardstock for my scallop and the image is on very vanilla card stock. I used the "Touch of Happiness" stamp set and stamped with black stazon. I used my aqua painter and ink pads to color in the image. I used basic gray for the bird bath,  poppy parade for my little red birds and flower. I used some wild wasabi for the grass and ground. I  used some bashful blue for the water and added some crystal effects to the water.

I added the sentiment with black stazon and used some so saffron grosgrain ribbon to wrap around and tie a bow. I finished off with a few silver pearls.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
