Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi everybody!  Thanks for playing last week.  Unfortunately, my plan on hiighlighting a member didn't work out this week. I used the following sketch, got my card made, and then realized it is similar to last weeks..[gee I guess I like this type of layout!] - It is different though so I am going with it.  Here is the sketch for this week:

Keep it mind this is a square card.  It should be 4.25 x 4.25 or 5x5 or 5.5. x 5.5 - the corners on the back layer should be rounded - I couldn't get them rounded on my program.  So, those are the 2 requirements.  You can flip it and use a shape rather than a circle if you want. 
Here is my sample:

I used the new PRE-CUT (oh that makes me happy!) GKD stamp set Winter Wings, illustrated by Asela Hopkins.  I went with a Goldfinch.  [This set is awesome 3 different birds!  Love it]!  I used black, Sweet Corn, and designer paper.  My flower was colored with copics to match the card.
It's your turn - now go and have fun.  Can I ask that you please either link your card to this discussion, or leave a message you uploaded your card.  With NING the order of cards seems to change every time I go into the gallery - I want to make sure I comment on EVERYONE's sketch challenge card. [If I have missed your uploaded card for my challenge, please let me know so I can leave you a comment.- better late than never!]  This challenge ends WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20th, 8:00pm.  The tag code and gallery [can be found] is stvsketchvd6.

Here are the rules:
You do not need to use Gina K Designs stamps to participate, although we'd love it if you did! In fact, if you use Gina K Stamps in your entry, your name will be added to the prize drawing TWICE! Please be sure to create a new project for the challenge versus linking up something you've created before. Using one card for multiple challenges is not permitted.
Read the challenge specifications carefully as only those that follow the challenge closely will be put into the drawing for the prize.

One winner will be drawn at random to win a Gina K stamp set valued at $24.95 or less!

Thanks for playing~~  See you in the gallery

Great sketch, Vicki! Your card sample is gorgeous! Wonderful coloring of the bird! Here is my card for the challenge:
I used one of Nina's Labels in place of the circle.
I participated this week (shhh...I'm supposed to be studying for midterms). Easy-to-work-with sketch, and I loved playing with my GinaK Autumn Beauty stamps. Love those images.

And a close up of the main image, as I popped some of the parts for a 3D effect:

Thanks for the challenge, for looking, and for the chance to win more GinaK goodness!
Umm...well, my close up was there, but has disappeared. Not sure if a moderator removed it.
Vicki, I had so much fun with this sketch. Photos and details on my blog HERE.
Whoo Hooo! I am so thankful to have today off, as it allowed me to play with Vicki's awesome sketch this week.

Here is my card:

Wishing You Joy
