TMS 551 - Tuesday Morning Sketches

Hi, everyone!  We have a new sketch to inspire you this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!  This is a fun sketch so I made a fun card!  I hope it brightens your day!

This image is Beccy's Place Poultry in Motion, and it makes me giggle.  Who hasn't felt like this in the morning?  I went with the precoloured image and fussy-cut so I could pop it up on foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment from Newton's Nook Caffeinated Cats on a white scrap, adhered the chicken, and doodled faux stitching around the rectangle.  I die-cut a bunch of stitched fishtail banners from my scraps and adhered them behind the rectangle. I added a die-cut tab with a punched heart on a stitched coffee bean-embossed background (Elizabeth Crafts).

For the Snippets challenge, here are the scraps I used to die-cut my fishtail banners.  Happily I was finally able to use and discard some of these snippets!

Here's our Sketch 551, designed by Debbie. You will notice I rotated the sketch counter-clockwise for my card.  I'm looking forward to seeing what you make!

I love this card Kitty, what an awesome way to make use of your scraps! The banners behind the image panel look fabulous, you did a great job selecting the colours. I love the addition of the hand-drawn border, it ties everything together perfectly. Well done!

Since I can't seem to keep the days of the week straight, I think I feel like this every morning. It's different having hubby work from home. In my mind it's either Saturday or Sunday - he's home in the morning after all :-) It's such a fun and cheerful card with the happy colours you used. Love it, my friend! I also wanted to thank you for leaving sweet comments on my blog. I’m slowly trying to catch up and thoroughly enjoyed browsing through your lovely projects. Stay safe and healthy!
