Beautiful Season Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Once again this was very fun Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers.  My challenge for this card was those narrow strips and getting them even. And I didn't get them even.  The right side is up about 1/8" higher than the left.  It looked just fine to me until I saw the photo of it on this post!!  Fortunately I was able to move it and now the card is all evened up!!  

I love this "Beautiful Season" set.  Chickadees are my most favorite birds, though I wish I could color them better!  I want to give this bird a try on watercolor paper and see if I can get a more realistic look to it.  I'll have to give that a try later in the week. I have a few other projects going on and one of them requires me to open up my sewing machine!  I have not sewn in a long time.  I use to sew all the time and I loved it but now I dread having to get it out. I'm always afraid I am going to forget how to thread it or oil it. But I do remember and I get the job done and put it away. Now I have to admit that is one thing I put away right away!! LOL Other stuff sits around for days before I put it away but the sewing machine.... well, the less I see of it the better!!

I did have fun playing along with this sketch. If you have time give it a try!  See if you can get those long thin panels straight!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I love the coloring on your card. The soft outline around the colored image really sets it off. Great job!!!
