Birdy - Let's Get Sketchy

Happy Monday everyone! There is a brand new sketch up over at Let's Get Sketchy and here is my take on it. I used a really old Basic Grey collection and Gesso and some mists on the background. I also used one of the November challenges over at My Scraps & More, I needed to use a collection that at least 1 year old and 1 random item from my stash that doesn't really go with anything. I used the pink felt Sassafras Lass bird, I've had that cute little guy for awhile but have never really found anything it worked for.

 The sketch I used for my inspiration.

Embellishments: Sassafras Lass, Chatter Box
