Get Sketchy and Just for Fun

I was over at Lisa's house yesterday and we worked on a few different projects together.  We pulled out the sketch from Get Sketchy #62 and decided to play along with our  blogging friend Mona's  Cupcakes Creations Color Challenge.

Combine those three factors and this is what I created yesterday.
Here is the Get Sketchy inspiration sketch:
Here are  the yummy colors from Mona:

The cardinal stamp is from Heartfelt Creations and there are so many wonderful cardinals in their sets that I had a hard time choosing which one to use. The image was colored using watercolor pencils.  The papers are from Stampin Up and Basic Grey.

Thanks Lisa for a fun visit! (and for sharing your supplies!)

Have a lovely Saturday.
