Cardabilities Sketch #28

Here we are with the next Cardabilities sketch! This is sketch #28, and I went in a totally different direction for this card.

Instead of looking for flowers or gears or sprockets, I went a little out of the box:

Here are three birds sitting on a branch. The branch and the birds are Maya Road chipboard pieces that I've painted and distressed a little bit. I added a little chocolate pearl to each of the birds for their eyes. The background is the Worn Wallpaper Technique from Technique Junkies, and I added a couple of clouds and distressed the edges.

This is actually my last project as a Cardabilities Design Team member. I decided to step down at the end of my term to give some other creative gals a chance to shine. You will see a lot of fresh new designers starting with the April 15th sketch over on the Cardabilities blog, and I can't wait to see what they do. Head on over to the Cardabilities blog to see what the current team has done with today's sketch and play along with us this week.
