Serene Comfort - FMS #39 challenge by Jen

Well two posts in one day! Let me explain. I made this card the other day and just realized I didn't post it for the sketch challenge at "Freshly Made Sketches"! Oh my goodness.

Here is the sketch

 and here is my card.
It needs little explanation other than I tried to use some NEW things such as Summer Starfruit and Midnight Muse card stock with the New "Comfort Cafe" DSP... love that stuff and it does all the work for this card.
 I also used the NEW stamp set "Serene Silhouettes" and "Blooming with Kindness".
 I LOVE them both too!
I stamped my image in suede and just took a midnight muse marker colored over the birds with it. The coverage worked fine and it was much easier to do.  
The sentiment is from the NEW "Blooming with Kindness" stamped in midnight muse ink.
I tucked a few branches from the bird builder punch behind the little "hi".
Here's a peek at the inside.
Hootie says " Hoot Hoot Hooray... Thanks for stopping by today!
Please leave a comment with your thoughts; I hope you will stop by again!"

What a darling sentiment and unique color combo, Diane! The yellow card base is so fun and unexpected, it really reflects the optimistic tone of the sentiment. Love those birds in the branches, too!

Love your card Diane. Don't you just love the Comfort Cafe DSP?. I know I do. What a great tip to colour the birds with the Midnight Muse and you had stamped them with the Soft Suede. Really gives them a different colour. Hugs Karen
