Very Versailles and Free as a Bird for Casethissketch and Less Is More

HI Everyone.  Quick post for you tonight.

I went looking for some inspiration and found two challenges that provided just that at casethissketch

I inked up two sets from Stampin' Up! one called Very Versailles and the other one is Free as a Bird.  I loved the challenge of using tangerine and aqua - colors I never usually put together, but loved the end result.
I stamped the single bird onto Neenah Solar white card stock and used my zig brush watercolor pens and a very small paint brush and very carefully colored the bird.  I then fussy cut him out.  Here's a closeup:

I stamped the feathers from Very Versailles onto the card base and then popped the little bird up and added the sentiment.  Here's my take on the challenges:

I'll be back later in the week with another card.  In the meantime warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight - and Kelly, that includes you.
