Rainy's June Card Sketch


June is almost gone!  I can hardly believe it, can you?  With the month drawing to a close, I figured I'd better get busy on some challenges.  Here is my card for Rainy's sketch challenge.  See sketch here.  There are still a couple of days left to get one completed.

This card came together very quickly.  I made a couple of these for my Operation Write Home box.  The stamp is from Stampin' Up!'s new For the Birds.  I tried so hard to resist this set but I just couldn't. One of my stamp baskets is for 'Fun sets.'  It is kind of an all other category for things that aren't flowers, backgrounds, alphas, etc.   I should probably label it Bird Stamps as that is what seems to be in there.  I just love birds and the images in this set were so cute and cover just about everything you might want on a card.


For the ribbon, I combined two twines.  The red is Doodlebug and the blue is Enchanted Evening from Papertrey Ink.  Their twine comes on a pretty, old fashioned spool and is very fine. You could use it for hand sewing.

Thanks for visiting today!
