At Digi Sketch Challenge we have another new challenge and the theme this fortnight is Cute.We have the super Cedar Chest Designs as our sponsor.

It’s the lovely Mariken’s turn to host and here’s her fabby sketch :

You can follow the sketch,theme or even both.Hope you stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used Fat Birdie by Cedar Chest Designs.Just for a bit of fun I thought I would paper piece this little cutie.A Copic Sketch Marker was used to create a little shading around the birds eyes and underneath the bird.All the patterned papers are First Edition Boho Chic.I added a stamped sentiment layered onto a lacy circle cut from my new Crafts Too die set.I found this sweet metal tab whilst rooting around in my embellishment stash so of course it just had to end up on my card 😉
