BearyBox Sketch#5

It's time for another BearyBox sketch challenge and I know that you will want to participate when you find out that this week's winner will be able to play with Rachelle Anne Miller's Christmas Collection - Singing Tree Clear Stamp. (lookie -->)


This was such a fun sketch but I struggle on what to put on that squiggly/swirl line on the right. (<-- LOL! i don't know what it's called) but, I remember that I have this Bird House stamp from Sugar Nellie that hasn't been inked before and that bird house would be perfect for it... well, i think so!

Just a simple card for today, after that cutting, I was too exhausted...LOL!

And, just a reminder tomorrow, Denise will be releasing 3 new Whimsy Animals Stamps and I'm telling you, you want your hands on these animals. And to get a chance for a free Whimsy Stamps Animal Collection Owl from her new release, visit us at PCP (Paper Craft Planet) for Whimsy's First Sketch Challenge.
