Ok, on to this week's Saturday challenge which is a sketch challenge. Saturday challenges are for our subscribers to join in and every time they do they are entered to win a $75 Stampin' Up! merchandise gift certificate and a FREE registration to Create with Connie and Mary Summer Mini Edition!

For this week's sketch I decided to flip it on its side. And here is what I came up with.

I used the Nature Walk stamp set and the Botanical Gazette DSP. I stamped the branch onto water color paper using Black StazOn and then perched the bird on top the branch. I colored them in useing my blender pens and classic inks (Marina Mist, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler).

I mounted the main image on to a few pieces of the DSP and added a piece of Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon. The card base is Early Espresso. The sentiment is from the Bring on the Cake stamp set.

Be sure to head over to the Create with Connie and Mary site to check out the other Design Team Members cards using the sketch this week. While you are there make sure you check out their blogs as well!
