Challenging Wetlands

The Wetlands stamp set.  Wow.  I have had this little beauty and had not broken it out yet.  This is a pretty good neutral stamp set - for guy or gal.  Then I saw a fabulous sketch challenge and had to play along . . . 
and here is the sketch from Papertake Weekly . . . 
Now, they're having a Sketchie Free For All where you can choose any of their archived sketches or this new one.  

I chose the new one because it was there and I'm too lazy to look up any of the old ones.  But you know what?  This new one was a fine sketch and a great springboard for this card.
So, I saw another challenge happening where you needed to make a card that had Things With Wings with the Cute Card Thursday challenge.  Since this baby qualifies, I'm going to link there, too!  How exciting!!

And to top it off, this card was so incredibly easy and quick, I did two of 'em!
Just love it when I can do that.  One to keep, one to send . . . . Yay.

What I used:
Stamp Set:  Wetlands (#126693 - wood, #126697 - clear)
Card Stock - Soft Suede (#115318), Island Indigo (#122923), Very Vanilla (#101650), Pistachio Pudding (#131294) and Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper (#130144);
Ink - Early Espresso (#126974);
Other Awesome Stuff - Linen Thread (#104199), Paper Snips(#103579), SNAIL adhesive (#104332), Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430), Stampin' Trimmer (#126889).
