Challenge: 2 Sketches 4 You #26

The power was out here most of the day so I was forced to do things that didn't require electricity or good lighting.  That meant working and stamping were out of the question.  I got a lot of cleaning done by daylight that wouldn't have gotten done otherwise.  I learned something too.  I really like electricity!  I love the internet, I love the radio, I love television and at one point, I was even longing to do laundry!  

After dinner, when the power came back on, I took some time to play and decided to do a challenge.  I chose to participate in Laura's Sketch 26 over at 2 Sketches 4 You.  You can view the sketch by clicking here.  And here's my card.
This card uses designer paper and SU cardstock in certainly celery and brilliant blue.  The images are Hero Arts clear stamps stamped with pigment ink and embossed with clear.  I colored the tree very subtly with SU markers and a blender pen.  
The decorative circle was cut with the Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge.  The brass bird charm is from my stash for my business.  By the way, if you are looking for brass charms, check out my selection over at Montage Collage.
And here's the inside.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I enjoyed this sketch challenge and hope you did too.
