Sending Smiles

Hi!  While I've been spending a lot of time in my craft room these Christmas holidays, most of what I've been doing has been for upcoming DT challenges, but I do like to take some time out to make a card for some current challenges and this one was made for the current MFT Sketch Challenge.  And as I'm using a NBUS set, I'm also entering it into Work It Wednesday and SSS Monday Challenge.

I had this idea in my head to use Tweet On You since I first saw the sketch, but it's taken until now to get it onto paper.  It's not totally how I envisaged, but it's okay.  I stamped, colored and cut the images and then created my little scene using some blue Watercolor Wash patterned paper and some die-cut grass.  The little bird represents the small banner in the sketch.  

Then I went looking for a sentiment that would fit and decided on this one from Up and Away.  The background banner is also from Watercolor Wash - I think that's probably my favorite patterned paper at the moment - love it!

Thanks so much for visiting!
