Freshly Made Sketches: Whatcha Doin'?

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jen Brum and here’s what I did with it!
Whatcha doin'?

I've been looking for a reason to use those charming birdhouse dies with the cute little birds.  It's a set by Paper Rose and has SO many different options - different houses and stands and roofs and birds - even a weather vane! I used two little birds that seemed to be talking to each other then found this perfect sentiment in my stash!

I pulled the colors from the paper. Obviously the yellow, but the flower centers were kind of an olive green. I hadn't used olive in a very long time and it used to be my favorite so I happily pulled it out for my accents. 

Whatcha doin'?

I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
