INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 1- stampwithmareescards

Welcome to my blog you may just be starting the INKspired Sketch blog hop or you may have hopped across from Marlene Goulder. This is the Sketch that the talented Teneale Williams gave us to play with this fortnight.
When I  saw the sketch the wonderful burlap ribbon was calling and since spring is in the air ( I have four female geese sitting on eggs, oh the noise and fights!) I just had to use the birds and nest stamp from the wonderful World of Dreams stamp set, love this set. Then for the card I had to use Baked Brown Sugar cardstock and added another layer that was embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder and sponged with the Baked Brown Sugar ink.With the words punched and a Bitty butterfly inked and punched out (love the punches, so quick n easy), it was complete. Let me know what you think.



Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you in a fortnight's time when we reveal the next sketch.
Next on the INKspired Sketch blog hop is Narelle Macey.
