C.R.A.F.T. Challenge # 12

This is my card for this week's CRAFT Challenge, which was a great sketch. I'm not sure if this is a bit too busy with the background paper but I thought it would go well with the little bird stamp which I picked up last week for only 99p and is one of the new My Mind's Eye stamps. I've inked it up with Stampin' Up! markers as it's a solid stamp and I wanted some different colours on it, I've used Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie & Ruby Red, which co-ordinated well with the papers, the two swirls on the side are from an old stamp set I've had for years (and never used!), it was just a little border stamp.

The DSP is "We are Memory Keepers", the sentiment is Stampin' Up! from the set "Cheer & Wishes" inked up with SU Chocolate Chip, c/s - SU Old Olive & Pumpkin Pie & the orange ribbon is from my stash, but originally was the hanging labels on a T-shirt I bought & cut out (knew it would come in handy one day!)
