FMS272 Thoughts of You!

When I saw the sketch, the first thing I thought of was the branch 
from the Best Birds set.
I stamped the branch in Soft Suede
 but water colored it in Sahara Sand and Cucumber Crush.
I stamped the background "scratches" in Rose Red as well
as the sentiment and the flowers.
I also used it to do the water color on the bird along with So Saffron.
The card front was attached to a piece of 
Soft Suede floral DSP and then a piece 
of Thick Whisper White for the base.
I hope you can play along with the sketch this week

Thanks for stopping by and have a fab weekend!
