Ostrish - Look at this beauty!!! Isn't she fun?  It is time for another sketch at Seems a Little Sketchy and Jen designed this one.  I love all the elements in it.

We are sponsored by Squigglefly. They have lots of fun images.

My image is Squigglefly's Ostrich. I love her her purse and pearls. Ms. Ostrich was colored with Copic's and I added stickles to her purse, and the band and feathers on her hat. The image was cut with a SU framelit and inked with distress inks.

My DP is K & Companys Spring Blossom.
The pin is one that I recieved in a stick pin swap at CDAC. I accented it with a feather. The eggplant ribbon was tied using my Bow Easy. I don't know that I could tie a bow without it anymore. It makes life so much easier. LOL

Seems a Little Sketchy is a fortnightly challenge, so you have 2 weeks to play with the sketch and enter in our challenge.
Special thanks to Squigglefly for sponsoring this challenge!
