Winnie in Red, White and Blue

Good morning, it's time for another Willow Sketchie Challenge and this is the card I have made following Hazel's great sketch:

I have used the gorgeous image 'A spot of gardening' - available from the Willow Designs Store and coloured her with ProMarkers.  The papers are NitWit 'Tour London' and the card stock my usual preference - Core'dinations.  I enlarged the little bird and printed him out several times, I then decoupaged him up and sprayed him with some spray and shine. The ribbon, buttons and twine are from my stash and the sentiment is a stamp from the Forever Friends Retro Collection.

As usual I have decorated the inside of my card:

This is Hazel's sketch:

 and she has chosen a colour theme:  Red, White and Blue.

You don't have to follow both the sketch and the theme unless you want to, one or the other will do just fine.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge 155 - Buttons and Bows
Craft Your Days Away Challenge 45 - All Creatures Great and Small
Crafty Calendar May Challenge - Things with Wings
Pattie's Creations Challenge 44 - Recipe (buttons, ribbon, sentiment)
Crafter's Companion Monthly Challenge 24 - Here comes Summer
Oldie But A Goodie Challenge - Things with Wings (ribbon, buttons, twine and card stock all over six months old)

Make sure you pop over to the Willow Sketchie Challenge Blog and have a look at the DT inspiration, you have until 20:00 hrs on Wednesday 30th May to enter and the prize is a voucher to spend in the Willow Designs Store.  Don't forget you can either follow the sketch and/or the theme.

Thank you for visiting today.
