The Big 4-0-0!

Hello All! 

Today is an exciting day at Freshly Made Sketches as we are at the end of our month long celebration and at Sketch 400!  And along with Sketch 400, comes prizes from wonderful companies in the crafting community!   So without further ado, Sketch 400!

The sketch~

I was excited to do this sketch as I envisioned using the stamp from Sweet n Sassy Stamps for the card.  It came out just as I had planned.  Isn't it nice when that happens?!  The set is Singing Praises and is just spectacular.  The birds are gorgeous!  The set is currently FREE with the purchase of $75 from the Sweet n Sassy Store, but keep your eyes pealed as it may make a reappearance in September! 
The bird was colored with Copics.  I wanted a blue and brown color scheme; I found a blue panel on my desk that was a discard from a stamping with a stencil technique.  It was perfect.  I then used the Falling Leaves Background Stamp and added leaves to the top of the blue panel as well as the main white panel.  I used the gorgeous shade of blue, Caribbean Sky, from the Glacier Caves Cube Set
My square window and blue frame was die cut with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Squares Dies
Lastly, the sentiment is from the Scripty Thoughts Stamp Set.  The bird and white panel are popped up on foam adhesive.  I finished it off with a few sequins from SSS. 

Now it is your turn!  Head over to the Freshly Made Sketches Blog for all of the details on this week's festivities and check out the rest of the team's inspiration- they always blow me away with their talent! 
Thanks for stopping by!
