Sketch Challenge


A real simple easy card today, as my time is limited with family issues!  I liked the Saturday Sketch Challenge #135 from Stampin 411:


and used some Kaleidoscope DP I totally forgot I had along with two new SAB set, Happy Moments and Whimsical Words:


Of course, AFTER I finished the card, I realized I was supposed to put the sentiment at the lower right.  It was 1:00 AM, and I just couldn’t come up with a single idea of what to add there, so I just left it as it was!!!  I did draw the bow & string at the top of the birdcage so it didn’t look as if it was just floating in midair!!!  Thanks for visiting today!

  2. This is awesome! I love the birdcage stamped on the designer paper. It looks wonderful!

  3. The card is perfect, I would not worry about havig the sentiment on the lower right, it looks great where it is.
    Love the colors and images you chose, I also like how you tied the ribbon through the scallop edge.

  4. Too cute!! Thanks for playing along this week with us over at Stamping 411!!!

  5. Love the color combination!! I move the sentiment all the time...the sketch is just a starting point!!! Thanks for playing along with the Stamping 411.

  6. Sometimes less is more. It doesn't need another sentiment added. It is beautiful just the way it is!

  7. I'm sorry I haven't been keeping current on all of your blog posts, but I hope things are going well with your dad. I know how difficult times like this can be for family members and I hope all works out for the best for everyone. I hope he's well through all of this.
    Your card is amazing and I just LOVE that sentiment! I can't wait until my stamp set comes so I can use that stamp! I love the little bird cage and those cheery colors!

  8. I love the fonts in that sentiment, and great idea to draw in the bow and string. Loos great!
