The Paper Players Sketch Challenge # 57

I had a few hours to myself today (which is a very rare occurrence!), so I decided to take advantage of that to complete a challenge card.  Today's challenge is a sketch from The Paper Players. Here is the sketch:


And here is my card:
 I just recently earned this stamp set for free and I really enjoy using it.  I have used the large flower stamp for backgrounds and for the main images.  The bird is adorable too, and the saying is great for cards or in scrapbooks so I've also been using those quite often.  To get the shimmer on the flower image and bird, I sprayed both with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  The photo does not do that product justice!  It adds just a touch of elegant glimmer to the images.

Hope you enjoy it!
