The Rainy Day Sketch Challenge last month was SO FUN!  I was excited that there were actually some takers!  Woohoo!!  So… I’ve made another sketch to play with for this month.

Here is my take on the sketch.

I love this silhouetted “Cattail Birds” image from Memory Box.

So for some blog candy, providing there are some challenge takers, this sweet image along with a Memory Box “Orchard Bird Combo” stamp will be given to the winner.  Notice the little flower image on the side of the wood mount in addition to the main image on the “Orchard Bird Combo” stamp.  This creates so many great possibilities and variations with just a single stamp.

If you do decide to play along, leave a link to your creation in the comments section.  Provided there are some entries, a winner will be selected on July 1st giving you a little over 2 weeks to play.  Oh and please make sure that the link you leave goes to the specific card you are entering and not to your blog or gallery in general.  Hope you can find some time to play!

The Sketch Challenge is now closed.
