SOUS card sketch: Sept 19-Oct 2

Hello friends!

Today is another card sketch reveal day at Stuck on U Sketches. This sketch comes to us from the oh so talented Leah Schaeffer.
and here is my take on the sketch
 
I cut a few of the patterns in the Prima Almanac collection into strips for the background. I wanted to keep this card neutral so I only used kraft, white and black. I layered a real doily with a stamped doily. I love the look of white embossing powder on kraft paper. I added the chipboard bird that my dear friend Katie gave me from her stash (I love the embossing on it), and the sentiment from Unity Stamps which I thought went really nicely with the bird.
 
 Supplies used: Patterned Papers-Prima;  Cardstock-Stampin Up; Doily Stamp-October Afternoon; Sentiment stamp-Unity Stamp Co; Embossing Powder-American Crafts; Doily-My Little Yellow Bicycle; Chipboard bird-Michaels; Button-My Minds Eye; Misc-hemp string, lace ribbon, embroidery floss.

This sketch challenge is up for the next two weeks. I hope you will play along and link up your card at SOUS for a chance to be featured in our Top 3!
 
Have a great day
