Super Birdbrain

This Memorial Day Monday brings a new sketch challenge from 
From The Heart Stamps.

Here's my card:
and I printed him out big enough to have room to do some 
shading when I colored him with  my Copic markers .
Then fussy cut him out and adhered him to a star studded front card panel.
This paper was in my stash, sorry- I have no idea where it came from.
I figured since his cape extends outside the card that
 I'd just use a larger envelope to mail it...that should work!
 Thanks for stopping by.

It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS. I was thinking about the word "petals",
all that came to mind was flower petals and bicycle petals.
I went with flowers.

The black dotted frame is raised 
( I cut a frame from craft foam and an identical  frame from dotted paper)
I used a Stampabilities  stamp called Sketched Flower 2,
colored it with Copic markers and added Wink of Stella to add some sparkle.
The hello sentiment is from W plus 9.
Here's a close up:

I hope you can find the time to play along with us.
