Good morning all! I have a very quick post for you today.  My card today was made using this weeks Sweet Wednesday Sketch.  I jumped on this one in a hurry, lol.  I just loved the sketch and am very pleased with the outcome.  My color scheme was inspired by the challenge over at etsy inspired challenge.  This week they are being sponsored by this store-Kimmiprout.  She specializes in polymer clay buttons and they are too cute!! I may have to pick some of these up!

Here is the picture that inspired my color scheme and my selection of papers.








Aren't they great!  She has lots to choose from and some pretty amazing colors. 
I love this image!! It is called Resting Swallows and is from Delicious Doodles. My sentiment stamp is from KLM Digistamps but is actually a real stamp.  All cardstock is from Stampin Up and my dp is Me & My Big Ideas.
 
Challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday: the sketch
Etsy Inspired: the color theme
Charisma Cardz: watch the birdie
Ok that is it for me today- running behind.  Have a good day!
