Sweet Tikki Bird Sings Hello

Well, it is Sweet Sketch Wednesday today. I hope you run over to my sketch blog and check out all of the fun there. We are singing the Sweet Sketch Wednesday song over there. So why don't you come and join in. While you are at it, check out all of the Design Team members' fun blogs. I couldn't do it without them.

This week I was inspired to use a bird set that I found with lots of different birds. From the moment I saw this bird it reminded me of when I went to Disneyland when I was 14 years old. I had never been to Disneyland before and have only been once since then. My favorite main attraction was the Tikki Room. I love the song and the room was so tropical and fun. You can view the video on you-tube here. Hope you enjoy my card I had so much fun making it and remembering my fun times at Disneyland. I used a sponge dauber to get that added color on the bird's chest.


Stamps: TCP Studio Whimsical Birds

Paper: Die cuts with a View Paper Stack, Real Red, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White SU
Ink: Real Red, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry
