Tuesday Morning Sketches #254 - Doodle Pantry!

Good morning everybodeeeeeeeeeee (you have to be picturing Grover in your head, arms waving, when you read that. Go back & do it again.)
The sketch that Melissa designed for Tuesday Morning Sketches  this week was so much fun to play with - and I love how my card turned out! Doodle Pantry is our sponsor this week, and I thoroughly enjoyed colouring this awesome parrot - I hope I did the fab illustration justice!

Supplies: Parrot Play digi from Doodle Pantry; Bic and Spectrum Noir markers; Cuttlebug embossing folder; classic small & lacy oval Nesties; pleated ribbon from Recollections; buttons from stash

As happens with a lot of my animal cards, I presented this to the kids for final approval - and got an enthusiastic thumbs up (and then a lecture from Connor on all sorts of scarlet macaw facts). 

Here's the sketch - I love the shaped edge! You'll see quite a few interpretations of it with the DT cards - this team is so talented :)



This sketch is open until next Sunday, June 22nd - be sure to hop around & see what the rest of the team created!

Very nice and colorful. I had to laugh that you got approval and fun facts about macaws.
