Playing in Paradise Sketch Challenge #3

Hello crafters,

I hope you are all swell and enjoying summer!  It is already the second Friday of July, so a new Playing in Paradise Sketch challenge starts today.  I get to play the role of lovely hostess and it is my first time actually preparing a sketch.  So, I hope you like it and will be inspired to come play with us!  I'd love to see what you make.  Here is my sketch:

For my inspiration piece, I created a card using the beautiful Trail Mix line by Bo Bunny.  All of the papers are from this line, and I used them for all the die cuts as well.

The rolled roses where made using Tim Holtz's Tattered Pinecone die.  I love how they turned out :)

Thanks so much for visiting and for taking the time to leave a comment.  I appreciate each one and am doing my best to visit everyone.  It may take a while, but I will get there :)

Hugs & happy crafting,

Beautiful card, Dawn, with such rich details - it must look absolutely gorgeous in person - with the punched out evergreen trees, jeweled earth-tone colors, pretty white "lace" edging, and beautiful bird! I so admire your ability to tie bows with twine - I just fumble way too much no matter how hard I try LOL - I love this card with all the beautiful "muted" details. hugs, de
