Freshly Made Sketches & The Play Date Cafe

Sunday, December 16, 2012

Today I am playing two challenges together, Freshly Made Sketches and The Play Date Cafe Challenge!

The colors from the Play Date Cafe played a big part on this card. My picks are Gumball Green, Primerose Petals, and Real Red.

My red bird got all dressed up for a holiday, sitting pretty on a doily:-)

I thought the sketch was very simple yet elegant:-) It actually took me a very long time to come up with this design! I hope you like it:-)
