2 Sketches 4 You Bonus Sketch

Hello my friends! Hope you had a great weekend. We had a dinner party on Saturday. It was so nice to get together with friends and just chat! =)

I am supposed to come up with a bonus sketch this week for 2 Sketches 4 You. Here is what I came up with:

And here is my card:

This week's sponsor is InStyle Stamps. This cute image that I used is called Church Chicks. I cut out the cute chicks and built a little scene for them. I drew and cut out a few little clouds and used them as masks to make the sky with some tumbled glass distress ink.

I clear-embossed two cute flower image from this set by Lawn Fawn, then inked the piece with yummy spun sugar distress ink for my background. I used Martha Stewart's Garden Trellis deep edger punch for the first time as well.

Please check out 2 Sketches 4 You blog for Laura's Sketch 48. If you get a chance to make a card using my bonus sketch, make sure that you link it to Mr. Linky at the 2 Sketch 4 You blog so that I can go and check them out! =)

Hope your week is off to an awesome start!
