Made today’s card with a couple of challenges in mind.

The sketch is Waltzingmouse’s Sketch Challenge this week.  After creating the sketch I realized that I had sorta reversed the design.  Guess my dyslexia kicked in a bit.

The second challenge, over at Stampin’ Sisters in Christ, is to include an animal/bird on your card or project.

Speaking of challenges, I have MY OWN LITTLE SKETCH CHALLENGE going on which also offers some candy.  Would love to have you join in and give it a try.

Happy Crafting!


Stamps: Waltzingmouse “Asian Gardens” and “Asian Gardens Additions”

Papers: PTI Select White; Teresa Collins “Fabrications” 8 x 8 Designer Paper

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Real Red and Creamy Caramel

Accessories: Grosgrain Ribbon; Rhinestone, Corner Rounder Punch
