Christmas in July - Day 2 - Sketch

     Here we are on Day 2 of the Christmas in July daily challenges at Catch the Bug and today we get to use their sketch.  I used this cute, silly bird who's in the process of decorating for Christmas.  He's definitely an "early bird" on Christmas decorating since it's only July.  :-D

Here's the sketch & you can see I adjusted it 
slightly for a square card.
I also used colors from House that Stamps Built.

 The House That Stamps Built Inspiration Palette Challenge JL1520

Colored w ProMarkers
Cut with Unbranded die
Frame cut w QuicKutz die
Sentiment cut w Die-Versions die
Papers from DCWV Basics stack
Satin ribbon and Twine bows


     So far, I'm right on course with doing a card each day of the Christmas in July event and I already have the next project done so check back tomorrow.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Awesome card with your "early bird" and great papers. Better not let him get near your cats, lol. Thanks for joining in the Catch the Bug Day 2 of the Christmas in July Celebration, Lisa Lynn DT.
