SSD Sketch Challenge 14 and new stamps!

Welcome to the Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday! This month we introduce an amazing new sketch artist, Jami Bova aka Sgt Stamper. She has created today's fun sketch on the Stamp Tramp blog. I would love to see everyone play along and take a peek at this months new releases.

For my card today I used a brand new set called Chicks. This set is just adorable. There are so many wonderful sentiments in this set. Some sweet and some Sassy...just like us Stamp Tramps like em!
I used the single chick for my card today. I sponged distress inks for the background and watercolored my chick with Stampin' Up! water based inks. I used my new Martha Stewart edge punch to create the center of the card. My papers are My Minds Eye and Bazzil cardstock.
Of course I had to finish it off with my Madeira thread and sewing machine.

I hope you enjoy the card. Make sure to take a look at the other DT's cards. I am sure you will find lots of inspiration!
Keep checking back because I will have a Skipping Stones Stamp set to give away this month!

Challenges:
Flourishes - Scallops

Hey Peg! Just wanted to make a long overdue stop in here and say hello!! I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth, though sometimes it sounds like a good idea! Very busy... with work, family, and DT stuff, never enough time in the day.... I'm sure you know exactly what I mean!! Love this image and card! All your cards have been fabulous and I really do see all of your posts, but I read them in Google Reader and am always in such a hurry, I don't take the time to click over to your blog to comment! Your work is lovely! Always!

Hugs,
Cindy
