Catch The Bug – Polka Dots and Stripes Challenge

                  Baby Stork

It’s been a miserable week here in my part of the world, it started raining Saturday morning and hasn’t stopped!  On the flip side it’s perfect for sitting in my craft room and working on some cards.  This week for the challenge at Catch The Bug,  I used the Friday freebie “Baby Stork”.  The layout (sketch) for the card is from the challenge at Sketch Saturday.

The image was colored with copics, and I used yellow Stickles on his hat and beak.  I also used blue chalk ink on the clouds and Stork, and pink chalk ink for the cheeks.  It’s cut and layered using the Spellbinders oval and scalloped dies.  The designer paper is from a Martha Stewart Paper Pad, and the border punch is also by MS.  The sentiment is another freebie from Create With TLC.  I made the flowers using the Tattered Floral die by Tim Holtz.
