SKETCHES! BY TAMARA...My Debut Design!

I was very excited to be accepted onto Tamara's new Design Team, and very honoured to be part of such a talented bunch! I do hope you will have the chance to play along with us each week :)For my debut design i decided to use this gorgeous background stamp from Whispers! I used Adirondack ink in 'Cranberry' onto some white cardstock, which i then trimmed and matted onto black Bazzill.
I made my little bird house by dragging the inkpad over another piece of the white card, which i cut into shape and used a Woodware circle punch for the hole! The little wooden bird, i found in a pack of two at Coleman's warehouse, but i acidentally threw away the packaging, so unfortunately i don't know the manufacturer!! There were two in the pack for 99p!
The sentiment is HOTP and the ribbon is Making Memories, with a tiny bit of fine leather twine from my stash! The card size is 5 x 7.
I do hope some of my friends that visit me here will play along, i would love to see what you create with the sketches!

Thanks for popping in today, i'll see you very soon :)
