Bloggers Challenge (Friday-I am late) Sketch Challenge

For Bloggers Challenge this week, Group Mom Lisa challenged us to a Sketch Challenge- I love trying out new layouts so I used the layout on my weekly D2D card.
Here is the sketch:

And, here is my card:


















I used the darling chicken from D2D for this week for the challenge. My Mom grew up on a farm, and we always thought we were so special when Grandma chose us to help her get the eggs for the day! 
  At D2D or Designed2Delight, you get a free digital image the first week of each month, and if you post a card, you get the next weeks image free. (The image is available in her store if you wanted to jump in…..)  I think it is a great way to see if you like digital images AND if you ever think you may like to be on a design team, it is a great way to see if you can meet a deadline of posting a weekly card and making comments on other players cards. 
I colored the image with Copics and added Spica Red to the dots, and clear Spica marker to the feathers to make her glisten.  Sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps Thoughtful Notes.
I popped up the head and feathers on this card so it would qualify for the Challenge (a D2D challenge blog) at Double Delights Challenges.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you had a great weekend
