2 Sisters Sketch Challenge

This week at 2 Sisters Challenge we are sponsored by The Hodge Podge Shop.  I used their beautiful Winter Chickadee for my card.  The challenge was to use this sketch from Mary:

I used generic scraps again on this one except for the velvet ribbon.  I bought this a while back and couldn't figure out what do do with it.  I decided to do all green since that is my favorite color.  I used a Matha Stewart border punch on the white.  I used an EK punch on the sentiment and the snowflakes.  I added snowflakes for two reasons.  First, because it is a Winter Chickadee and second, because I am doing double duty with this card.  My local craft group had a snowflake challenge.  I know snowflakes aren't green but white didn't work.  I topped them off with Martha Stewart glitter.

I colored the image with Copic markers twice.  I cut up the second image and layered two of the branches.  I also popped up the Chickadee.  Unfortunately, you can't tell that from the picture.  It is much better live.  I added liquid applique and some white glitter to the branches.  I added a few embellies and voila...all done.  I didn't enter any challenges with this one as I was too busy to search this time.

Please visit 2 Sisters and check out what the rest of the Design Team has to inspire you.

Thanks for stopping by!
