Hi there...thanks for stopping by to check out my card for this week's CYCI#72 Sketch Challenge...
I pulled out on of my newest Stampin' Up! sets A Happy Thing from the Sale-A-Bration catalouge.
I love this little birdie...he seems to be my favorite these days...I used SU! Whisper White for the base of the card...I have always loved rounding out the corner of my cards but these days I have been just punching out two...I like the way it looks...The patterned paper that I chose is by Crate Paper ~ Poolside ~ Summer Time...I love the colors which I felt would work perfectly with SU! Lost Lagoon ink and it did...I used SU! oval die cuts for the bird and Lil' Inkers designs Stitched Flag Sentiment die (I recently got it and love the stitch...I think it gives a little extra something) For the sentiment I used SU! Flag die cut and stamped the sentiment in Hello Honey...another new favorite color for me...I added a little bit of yellow chevron ribbon I ordered from Paper Issues and used SU! Linen Thread to tie the ribbon...I really like how this card came together...my original thought was completely different from what I ended up with and I am quite happy with it!
Thanks for stopping by and seeing my CAS card
