Sketch Time with Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Hello all.....

I am so happy to be joining in this week's sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and their wonderful sketch for this week which is sponsored by Doodle Pantry  
where I have been guest designing with my old team for the past few months. This will be my last month with the team and I will miss working with Laurie's beautiful images. Some of my older followers may remember that I also was on the design team for the original SSW and many of the great ladies that I worked with are still on the team, so it was a joy to use the sketch to create my card for this week.

Be sure to stop by the blog at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 to see what the team
has created for your inspiration and enter your card for a chance to win
Doodle Pantry images. Also be sure to enter your card into the 
monthly challenge at the Doodle Pantry blog and Challenge #44
for a chance at a store gift certificate and if you use an image from
DP, you will get this month's featured set free.

For my card I used two new sets: Tweet Birdhouses and Tweet Birdhouses
SVG e-cuttable shapes.
I combined the digital papers from the set, using them for my background
papers and for the paper piecing of the birdhouse. I used makers to color
the printed birdhouse. I created the banners in the Cameo which is also
how I cut out the birdhouse and papers. I added flowers which are
a Silhouette cut file along with a punched Martha Stewart butterfly.

I added a flower punch border and another of the butterflies to 
the inside of my card.

I am also entering my card into the challenge: Stamps and Spring
at Stamplorations  -- Love this challenge blog!

Hope you can stop by at the above blogs and take a look and join
in the challenges for this week.

Happy day.........
