Crafty Secret's Sketch Challenge!

This week's challenge at SCS/Crafty Secret's was to use a card designed by Melissa Phillips. (LilyBean's Paperie) I adore her work! She has such a knack for anything vintage! Her colors are always so soft and pretty. Anyway you can see her card HERE. I hope I did it justice! I used the bird set from Crafty Secrets and Basic Grey paper. I added some stitching, vintage ribbon, a felt butterfly, and Dew Drops. I colored the birds in using my Prisma colored pencils and Gamsol.

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!!!

Very pretty! I think you did a great job capturing the vintage/collage feel of Melissa's work. I can usually tell if a card is hers before seeing her name!
