Card patterns - sketch 45

Card Patterns has this sketch up at the moment - check it out, it's a little bit of a tricky one.

Here's my card:

I've used mostly Stampin'Up product for this card.  The stamp set is Friends 24-7 - one of my favs.  I've used Choc Chip and Pink Pirouette colours and some of the Designer Series pattern paper.
I've stamped the bird image onto White in Choc Chip ink, then again in the Pink.  Then, I've cut out the bird and pasted over the image.
I've added some stitched ribbon and some buttons for embellishments.
Here's a closer look at some of the detail:

Today is the last day of school - kids come home at lunchtime and the later on in the day, we have been invited to school for a dinner and Christmas concert.  Should be a lovely evening.  This will mark the start of school holidays - YAY.  I hope to enjoy a more relaxed pace - though it will probably be still rather busy.  Christmas lunch to organise, hubby's birthday, swimming lessons, camping for a week........ it should be fun.  Hopefully I still get some time to stamp and share what I'm creating.  Til next time....
