From the Heart Stamps Sketch Challenge 37

Happy Monday!  Did you have a fun weekend?  We had a quiet weekend with lots of football watching.  Mixed bag of winners and losers this week, so we had both happy and disappointing moments.  But life is good!  The humidity is beginning to ease, and the store shelves are stocked with holiday items.  Speaking of holidays...are you ready to see another Christmas card?

Today's card is my second as a new DT member for From the Heart Stamps!

The image is Seven Christmas Birds (so adorable and fun to color). 

And the sketch is no. 37 (versatile and easy to execute).

Do not be surprised if you see this image and this sketch again on my blog (not necessarily together in the same card).  After the image was colored with Copics, this card came together rather quickly.  A My Favorite Things die cut snowflake, that I glittered with Stickles, and a red pearl were all that was needed to complete the design.

Hope you play along with the design team at the From the Heart Stamps blog.  Remember, EVERYONE who enters will receive $1 credit to the From the Heart Stamps digital store.  Use it as a discount, or save the credits up to earn a free stamp.  Linky will close on Sunday at 10 pm CST.

Thank you for stopping by, and I'll see you on Friday for the Outlawz Friday Alcohol Markers Challenge!

  5. Sorry got cut off as I had to go in for work. I wanted to tell you that I just love the colors that you have used on your card and you sure picked the perfect design for these singing sweeties. :O). Hugs Lisa

  6. Tress, this is super cute. How did you make the sentiment banner ? Is that a die or handcut ?

    1. Thank you Imke! I printed the sketch. Next I traced the banner, scanned it, printed it in red, and handcut it.

  7. Bravo!
