SFYTT Friend to Friend

Good Monday Morning Peeps!!!

Today's card is made with Jen's Sketch for you to Try. This was a fun little sketch to work with.

My card was inspired by this card by Chat, she does beautiful work be sure to click over and check out her blog.

The base of my card is whisper white and I followed that with some basic black and then pretty in pink. I ran the pink through the cuttlebug with a hounds tooth embossing folder, it doesn't really show that much. The DS paper is from the Sweet Pea paper pack and each strip is backed with basic black. I used my blossom nesties for the focal mats and the cute little bird in a cage stamp comes from the SAB "Happy Moments" stamp set. Isn't it adorable? I added a silver eyelet, can't remember the last time I used one of those. I used some black gingham ribbon for the "hanger".

The sentiment comes from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set. I was inspired to hang the flag piece off the card from yesterdays Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample. I punched a pretty in pink flower and added a black brad and added it to the end of my sentiment flag. I finished it off with some more black brads on the strips behind the focal image.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
