Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 220 (TSSC220)

Yea, happy Monday to you!  I am excited about this week's sketch because I know you guys are going to rock it.  So I will get right to it.

Here is my sample. All of my inner pieces are a bit bigger--but that is the joy of sketch challenge-you can make them work with the images you want to use!  I was really wanting to use this hostess set a bit more before it retires (whoops, it did retire, I was so close).  I am not sure what my obsession is with birds but I love stamp sets with bird images.  I combined two of the images together to make one.  Love it.

Looks like a great place for birds to hang out don't it.  I am guessing that there is another family of birds in the little bird house--small birds, lol!  So that is why the birds needed to nest above the house.

Stamps: Up in the Air
Paper: Early Espresso, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, dp from the Twitterpad collection
Ink: Brown Stazon
Other: markers, circle nestabilites

Hope you play along this week--get your friends to play along too.  If you add the link for the blog hop to your blog your friends can play along right from your blog!  Looking forward to seeing your samples.  Please be sure to link to the direct post and not just your home page.  Thanks!  Happy Stamping.
