CAS(E) this Sketch #167

I have been so busy this week and this is the first time I have had any time at all to do some card making! Yay!

CAS(E) this Sketch #167 challenge features this sketch.

Even though this is a pretty simple sketch I was a little stumped by it.  I had some ideas, but after looking  at the cards that had already been entered into the challenge I realized that a lot of the ideas had already been created.  After looking through my dies, I found something that worked for me. Using Memory Box dies I die cut the branches and the birds, and then colored with Copics. 

I have been seeing cardinals in the backyard for a couple of weeks or so. Their color next to all the brown still around is so vivid, that I decided to try to recreate that scene.  Here's hoping it greens up soon, although yesterday we received 4" of snow!!  In April!!  I really can't wait for all the green to come back!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back soon.
