Sweet Sunday.....Hey There

Happy Sunday Peeps!!

Here is the sweet sketch Karen has for us this week:

I started off my card by making the center element. I pulled out a fun new set that I had not inked up yet from Stampin Up called Open Heart.
 I stamped the leaves with black stazon onto some confetti cream card stock and then stamped the bird image onto some scrap confetti cream. 
I colored in the leaves and berries using my aqua painter. I used pear pizzazz, ole olive, cajun craze and pumpkin pie. The bird is colored with cajun craze, so saffron, and black. 
I used my white gel pen to add the small spots and to color the neck and small strip above the eye.

I die cut out the circle and then hand cut the bird out and added it to the main image with some dimensionals.
The BG is all made up using the Hardwood BG stamp 
The base of the card is Crumb Cake and then a layer of Cajun Craze. I stamped a the Hardwood BG a few times onto some confetti cream to use on my layers. I stamped some leaves along the bottom of the BG piece using some crumb cake ink. The leaf stamp is from the World of Dreams stamp set.
I added the flag pieces and the sentiment which comes from the Hey Bud single stamp.
I finished off with a couple of candy dots in the top corners.

Now let's see what the rest of the girls did with this fun little sketch:
