A late challenge

Happy Wednesday!! Well, I'm only 3 days late, lol. This past Sunday's High Hopes challenge was a sketch challenge by Jeanne. Here is her fun sketch:



And here is my card.....finally.....using this sketch:



Not the greatest picture, I'm not used to working with BRIGHT LIGHT!! That's right, it's SUNNY here today!! Anyway, I used Lenny's Love Me Nots....I think he's adorable with his little tweetie friend....& colored him with Prismas & gamsol. The birdie is stamped twice, cut out & popped up. I used Shimmerz on Lenny's wings, & Stickles on the ground beneath him. Papers are SEI Dill Blossom......& SU's Cool Caribbean. Nesties for all the circles....the sentiment is from a Studio G set from Michaels....3 Dew Drops (fake ones, actually) & a swirl clip with some fun ribbon that really does match....it's green & blue....but it looks awful in the picture, lol.



Here's a picture of the inside, using the same papers & little birdie. I was going to make the white part a circle, to match the front, but I will putting this one on Ebay & one thing I've learned is that card buyers NEED as much room to write as possible. So I went for the square layer.



Thank you so much for visiting.....on to the next project....I hope you have a wonderful, sunny day!!!
