Sketch Something #2

Well It's Friday again and that means another challenge at Stamp Something!!! This week Emily, a super talented DT member, created a sketch!!

This is my sample of sketching something #2.

It's a welcome baby card for my new niece, Cora. I used the stork from the retired SU set, buggies and booties (I think if I only had one baby set, this would be it..I just love it!!) I colored the stork with my watercolor crayons and an aquapainter. I took a few liberties with colors which normally wouldn't be a big deal, but my SIL studies birds for a living. I'm sure she's seen a stork with apricot legs and a baby in it's beak!!!:)
I used sage shadow, close to cocoa and vanilla as the color combo. It was on SCS a few weeks ago and I though it was beautiful. I rounded the corners of all the layers to make it a little "girlier." And finished it off with some chocolate chip twill.
The sentiment is from Fancy FP, it was out and is so pretty, so I had too!!! I also used my swiss dots CB folder on the larger vanilla layer. And sponged the smaller vanilla layer with sage shadow.

Hope to see you over at stamp something, as always there is some super blog candy up for grabs!!

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Beautiful Erin! I love the this color combo, it is very pretty. Such a nice change too from the typical pinks for a baby girl. Love the image and coloring, great edging details and embossing too. I'm sure that Cora will love it! Such an exciting time, congrats to everyone! :)
