Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #89

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!! It's time for another fun sketch from Taylored Expressions! I made two cards for this sketch. First the sketch:

Here is my first card:

I used another adorable digital image from Pink Petticoat. This cute little birdie is from the set of images called " Chrip Up."

Isn't she adorable? I love the little skirt (or so I think) she is wearing! And the little hearts are so sweet or should I say "tweet!" =)

Here is my second card for this sketch:

This cute stamp is from Taylored Expressions called "Wings of Joy". I think I just don't have any resistance for adorable images and cute stamps! This is a very sweet holiday birdie set!

I colored the stamped image with some Copic markers then covered the word "joy" with some Star Dust Stickles. I layered two punched out snowflakes before I added the button.

That's all I have for you today! Don't forget to check out what the other members of the TESC Sketch Crew came up with! Here are the links:
