Sketch Saturday with Crafty Sentiments

Hello and welcome to a new sketch challenge from Sketch Saturday! This is challenge #477 and the sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments! I chose Mia who is all cozy in her fall jacket, boots and tights because Fall is my favorite season and I'm looking forward to its beginning!

I chose the blue section of paper behind the image to highlight the beautiful shade of blue in the sky when September and October come. The plaid strip I imagine to line her jacket, and the red strip of course is to link back to the color I chose for the jacket itself.

Thanks for looking! I had fun with this image and hope you find some time to get crafty and have a little fun this week as well.

Stamps: Crafty Sentiments digital "Mia" ; Paper Neenah solar white, blue panel, scrap of patterned paper, Bazill red, scraps of green and teal; Dies: Gathered Garden from Papertrey Ink, MFT stitched rectangle, punch from Stampin' UP; Other: PTI button, twine, Prismacolor pencils and gamsol, twine, button

Sketch Saturday #475 ... New Designer

Good morning and thanks for stopping by! I am so pleased to announce that I am a new team member at Sketch Saturday, which has a fabulous team of international designers. I always enjoy a good sketch as a way to get the creative juices going. This first one was a lot of fun to put together.

The sponsor for this particular sketch is MMedel Illustrations on etsy. I selected this cute kitten from the Kitten Bundles who seems to have a bit of a self-satisfied look on her face. That's what prompted me to use the die for the wee birds (Memory Box) as the embellishments, and the sentiment (from a Papertrey Ink set). There might or might not have been five birds when I started this card. :) Ask the kitty.

Thanks so much for looking and have a great day. Hope you can play along!
