Peachy Keen Challenge #35

Whey Hey!!This time we have a sketch AND inspiration from the colours IN the sketch.

Here's your challenge should you choose to accept it!........Of COURSE you will. 

Here's my take on it........................
Now I'll admit it had me stumped for a while, but it wouldn't be much of a challenge without a bit of head scratching, would it?
I thought I had to use the colours as is, but when I read the remit again, I realised they were a guide, NOT to be used literally. Figuring THAT out, I proceeded to make my card quite happily. LOL Doh!
Here is the wording........'Use the sketch and colour combo for inspiration for your layout or card'.
As you can see, I used the colours in the sketch, but I didn't follow them blindly.
(Actually, looking at it now, it looks a bit Swedish, don't-cha think)? Hmmm, I think it's the ribbon!

I used my fabulous 'Happy Bird and phrases', with the sentiment curved to match the Nestie.
It was easy to curve the sentiment 'coz the acrylic stamps are super quality and can stand being 'abused' by me!! Anyway, onwards Viv.

I coloured my delightful Blue bird with Copics and the DP is from SU!.
All the rest is stash stuff. Considering I was totally intimidated by the sketch at first, I quite like my card and think it works a treat.

Well my good blogging friends, I hope you liked it too and if so, you are going to LOVE the samples done by my fabulous friends on the Peachy Keen DT!! Pop on over to the Peachy Keen blog and feast your eyes......

Well, I think I'm starting to repeat myself, so I'll shut up now. Ha Ha!!
