STAMPlorations Sketch challenge #21

Hi Everyone, its sketch challenge time at STAMPlorations!

It's a fun one:



And I did have fun with it, as you can see:



I used the PATCHWORK FRENZY: Graphic Pentagons for the cute little birds. The pentagons are a little tricky, as they resist pattern stamping - unlike hexagons, which are easy that way. But to make up for that you can use them to make fun little creatures - like my birds.......I just doodled their body parts and gave them googly eyes....

For the sentiment I used the Sentiment Builders: Christmas & New Year  - it's so versatile, it does not limit you to the Holidays. I heat embossed it in white.

The challenge ends October 17; the winner will be announced October 19.

Our wonderfully creative DT has beautiful cards to inspire you to play! Our guest designer this month is the amazingly talented Elaine- if you don't know her you have to visit her blog and get to know her a bit better!

 So come on over to STAMPlorations and play - I hope to see you there!

I am also linking this card with Virginia's view challenge #8 - CAS
