I thought I'd try two different approaches to today's sketch. This first one is a one layer, all stamping and no patterned papers. I scored several lines across the top to create that top panel of the sketch and used the lacy pearl ribbon to create the middle panel with the sentiment.
And here is one with patterned papers and only a stamped sentiment. I thought if I put the bird on the ribbon this card could be used for male or female. The patterned paper is from DCWV Linen Closet. The bluish lines in the plaid are actually sparkly but you can't see that in the photo. I used my Bird Nesties from Spellbinders for the bird and the wing is actually a leaf from a Sizzlet die. Supplies: Stamps - PaperTrey; Ink - Card#1 Versafine Onyx Black, SU!
