A fine day to be a pheasant

HI all!

Today is Blogger's Challenge day and it is a sketch challenge.

Here is what I came up with...I haven't stamped in two weeks, really - so my mojo is definitely not flowing.....I think we are back to semi-normal now so maybe I can get myself back in the swing of things :)

One thing I did change about the sketch was the sentiment placement. It was supposed to be on the lower panel, but I put it under the pheasant instead.

recipe:
stamps: woodgrain background, autumn days, teeny tiny sentiments
cards tock: kraft, very vanilla, soft suede, bermuda bay
ink: soft suede, bermuda bay, chocolate chip and bravo burgundy stampin' write markers
accessories: 5/8" vanilla grosgrain, latte buttons, playground buttons, stampin' dimensionals

I sure could use some love this week.....let me know what you think.

I love it. I actually considered using this set for my card as well, but opted to make a sympathy card. I like the added blue to the pheasant, and the buttons are a nice addition. Great job.

I do not need this stamp set. I do not need this stamp set. Seriously, I love the turquoise with the brown. The buttons add the perfect accent. Beautiful card.
