Another Thank You

I made another thank you card today for the sketch challenge #156 at CPS. I loved the clean & simple layout, so it became a "must do" on my to do list this week. I knew I wanted to translate the swirl pattern on the sketch into a tree branch, so, of course, I needed a bird to go with it (which happens to be seasonally timely anyways). The color combo was inspired by a shopping trip to Home Goods today. I saw a glass jar full of speckled eggs that were blue, green and yellow - so beautiful! I used CTMH's Twilight, Creme Brulee and Olive with hints of Sweet Leaf and Autumn Terracotta. I might need to use this combo again! For the bird, I used the "comb sweep" technique. I just simply ran a comb over the inked up image before stamping. Since this card is all stamped, I'll also submit it into Moxie Fab World's Olympics of Stamping Contest. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
