ISSC26&CAS4 - Hope you have a 'tweet' day!

I came across a TWO new challenge blogs.  One is called  iSpy Sketches and once I saw this week's sketch #26 I was drawn right in!  The second is CASology and the 'inspiration' word is: BIRD.

At first I was going to stamp a flower on the tall panel, but then I looked through some of my new images and this Stamping Bella image was perfect!!

It was weird not coloring in the image but after deciding to use my black and white polka dot washi tape, I decided to only color the bird and match that color with the sentiment panel (and yes - they DO match in real life!).  I used a sentiment from one of my Darcie's sets.  I'm ALSO going to enter this card in Catered Crop Recipe Swap  'washi' challenge too.

Here's the sketch:
And the Cue Card:

Have a great day!!!

Thanks for your visit!

What a cool card, Maria! Love the bold and graphic design to this. I think leaving the main image black and white is really eye catching. Makes the touches of blue really pop. That image could not be more perfect and I love how you used the washi tape, too. :)

Oh my goodness, I love this! The simple pops of color are so perfect and I'm lovin' that fabby Washi tape. Is it just me or does that look like the same blue as Tiffan's? Haha, maybe that's why I love that color so much. Hee hee!
