PSSIC10 - For Your New Nest

Hello!

(I am honored that this was featured at Link Up Tuesday on 8/6/13 Thank You so Much)

I have a shabby little card for you today using the latest sketch from Paper Sweeties Sketch Inspirational Challenge

I started with a Brown Kraft Cover Weight card base onto which I added my patterned papers from My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing Bluebell collection. A panel of Brown Kraft Cover Weight card stock was added to the center of the polka-dotted paper adding my embellishing of paper roses and leaves and a flower which I have cut from burlap and embellished with a vintage button and a twine bow.  I wrapped a length of gold shear May Arts ribbon around the card face and tied off in a fussy bow adding a twine bow and bird's nest to the center. 
The finishing touch was adding the sentiment from Paper Sweeties Sending Springtime to the lower right corner of the card. 

Now here is this month's sketch to get you started! 
We hope to see you join along in the challenge this month for your chance to win a $20.00 gift certificate for some Paper Sweetie Goodness! 

I am joining in over at Link Up Tuesday Linky Party, 3 Girl Jam - Anything Goes With Ribbon, D.L. Art - Linky Party, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes!

Hugs and Blessings!
~Tammy~

Ohhhhhh this is beautiful! LOVING the colors and the flowers!! And Pawn Stars ... *sigh* ... they were really rude to Adam ... the "stars" weren't there, just regular employees ... and he had an autographed basketball to sell - and they just looked at him, rolled their eyes and said, 'we don't buy sports stuff' and they must really do up the store for the show, because there was hardly anything to buy! The show always looks full of merchandise to purchase, and there was barely anything in there!!
