I've never done a sketch challenge before, but when I saw this sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, I thought it would be fun to play along!
Here's how my card went together -
*base is Very Vanilla - 4 1/4 x 11 - scored at 5 1/2
*next layer is also Very Vanilla - cut 4 x 5 1/4
*For the focal point of the card - I used a layer of Basic Black cardstock, and a layer of Typeset Specialty Designer Paper - both cut 2 1/2 by 3 1/4
* after I attached these two layers to the card front, I wrapped linen thread three times around all layers.
*my bird is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink -, as is my word stamp "Love Life"
*I used crumb cake ink to sponge the edges of the Very Vanilla Layers and also added some splotches with a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set. Gorgeous Grunge - a must have stamp set in my opinion! It has a permanent home on my stampin' table!
Supplies used on my card are listed below - the stamp set used is one of the FREE Saleabration products you can get with a $50 order! To order these products, please click on any image below.
