Tuesday Morning Sketches #393

Hello!  Thank your for stopping by today.  I do appreciate your visit.  The newest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a fun one.  I love it and you're going to as well.

Our challenge is sponsored by DRS Designs and my card features two of their stamps.  Bird on a Branch and Happy Moments, Happy Days Greeting.  Perfect for a masculine card!

I was positively inspired by a couple of players last week who used text in their background.  I remembered that I have this cool paper in my stash and it worked great with the image.  I picked up an Archival Ink pad at 40% off so I can do a little (very little) watercolor.  I colored the bird with Tombow markers and blender pens on Bristol Smooth card stock.  The card is a blend of neutrals, some very muted robin's egg blue and Kraft.  I decorated the envelope as well.

The inside has this simple but beautiful greeting.

It's a perfect birthday greeting without even saying "HAPPY BIRTHDAY."  It can be added if one so chooses.  I am just so pleased with how this turned out.

Please be sure to visit the team's blogs, too.  They'd love to hear from you.

Have a great day and we'll see you soon!

How pretty is this beautiful bird and the designer paper behind it?! I love how the branch spills out of the oval, and the matching envelope is so cool too! NJ!
