I {heart} sketches #68

Happy Bank Holiday Monday!
And as it's Monday, it also means it's time for another fabulous I {heart}sketches challenge over at From The Heart Stamps.

here's the great sketch for this week...

The twist this week: Sentimentally Yours (use a sentiment)
Join in the challenge, and everyone who plays will receive a $1 discount code for the store, and if you are the challenge winner, you will receive a $5 discount code to the store! :)
Remember though, you must use an image by From The Heart Stamps to be eligible, and please include a pic of the sketch in your blog post too.

Here's my final sketch card as the Guest Designer for April & May...

I've used one of my favourite characters from the From The Heart Stamps shop; Yes, it had to be a Birdbrain! This one is Birdbrain Wine, Hic!
The sentiment is one of FOUR that come with the image.
I've coloured the image using promarkers, and also pencils for the finer detailling.
I wanted to add some extra grapes so I punched out 6 small circles and coloured them with promarkers, then gave 2 of them a tiny stalk using a teensy bit of kraft card.
The green paper is by Teresa Collins, Fabrications; and the other 2 papers are by My Mind's Eye, Stella & Rose, Hattie.

I'd like to enter this Birdbrain at:
