TESC83 Pearly Bird

September 18th, 2009

Happy Friday!  Taylor’s sketch for this week may look a little wild at first glance, but it’s actually quite versatile and I can hardly wait to see what the Sketch Crew has come up with.  I hope you’ll play along too.  You can see the sketch and get all the details to play over at Taylor’s blog.


This card went in a totally different direction from my original intention, but it was one of those times where I just got a bunch of supplies out and started playing.  The cardstock, designer paper, tiny brads and ric rac are from the TE Easter Key Ingredients which is still one of my favorites (oops looks like it recently sold out.)  This card is 5″ square and the little blocks were created with my SU scallop square punch.  The bird is SU chipboard and I covered it with the Pearl Orchid Brilliance ink and heat embossed it with clear ep. I used both Cuttlebug and Spellbinders dies along with Marvy circle punches.  Pink Stickles are the final touch.

And now let’s see what the rest of the Sketch Crew has cooked up:

  • Donna Baker
  • Jackie Pedro  
  • Lynn Mercurio
  • Monika Davis
  • Sherrie Siemens
  • Stephanie Hargis
  • I’m hoping to maybe do something fun today.  Curt has been working really hard – worked last Saturday and then had to be out of town part of this week – and he’s able to take today off.  So I’m going to wait and see if he’d rather just chill today or go somewhere fun.  Either way I’m just glad he got the day off.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.
