Happy Hello / ESS Sketch #48


Summer is a few weeks from coming to an end... and I am wondering where did it all go - where did all the endless days of summer go? I am going to make a point to enjoy the last few weeks!

On that note, for this week's ESS Sketch #48, I decided to use vibrant summer fun colors :)! Tracy Clemente's sketch for this week really called my name - with all those layering opportunities and with that circle accent, I could not resist!

This is my take on this week's challenge:

The colors on this card spells "HAPPY" to me! The DCWV Citrus Stack pattern paper had the circles to go with the circle accent of the sketch. I inked this cute, nicely decorated birdie with peacock like feathers from Hero Arts Happy Hello set. I really like the glitter on the piece of DCWV Sorbet Stack pattern paper, and I used a Martha Stewart daisy punch with some more DCWV glitter paper to match.

I had a good time coloring the birdie and dressing up the card with fun gems. Thanks for stopping by. have a "HAPPY" day!

Supplies:
birdie - Hero Arts
Happy Hello set
"a HaPPY HEllo" - Hero Arts
Happy Hello set
DCWV Citrus Stack, DCWV Sorbet Stack, DCWV Glitter Stack, DCWV texture paper
Versafine Onyx ink
Martha Stewart daisy punch
Darice orange gems
atyouSpica glitter pens
scor bug for Scor-pal
