A fun sketch to follow for the challenge

Hi Again,

I worked in my craft room last evening and came up with the above card.  I seem to be working with more blues and greens lately for some reason.  Maybe it's all the green I see outside with everything in bloom.:-)  It's another warm day today in the 80's.  Not as warm as it was yesterday. though, and we are due for some rain. 

Anyways, I got out some stamps that I haven't used in quite awhile.  I just love that bird image!  I didn't even use seam binding on the card.  Can ya believe that??!!:-)  I found some great ribbon in my stash from SU!  Sweet pearls were added for the final touch. 

We plan to see a movie tonight.  My husband wants to see Avengers.  He says it's rated very well.  I'm going to check out the list to see what all is playing at the theatre.  So, bye for now!  Thanks for dropping by today. It's appreciated...take care!
