OWH Sketch Challenge #165


Today I've been trying out some fun extras I received in my last Stampin' Up! order and playing along with the OWH Sketch Challenge

This bold leaf print was just screaming for either a bird or floral focal point.  I went with my bird punch and an SU stamp set called Language of Friendship.  This is a great layout, and I hope to try my hand at a few more cards using this sketch!

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week!

  1. This is beautiful Shari! I haven't used that punch and stamp set in a long time. you've inspired me to dig it out next time I get to do some crafting. The background paper really is a perefct combo with the bird.

  2. Shari, I love that paper and the bird just goes so well with it. such a bright cheery card with a fabulous sentiment.

  3. Wow. A floral focal point would've worked, but the bird is too, too perfect! I love now you made bright beautiful! Since I tend to lean toward bright in my cards and my house, I'm going to have to give more thought to exactly how you pulled that off.

  4. I agree that this is an excellent layout - very versatile. Love the bird die and stamp set, they look fabulous with the background paper.

  5. Love that bird. Perfect paper!

  6. I like the combo! Your SU demo must be pretty cool. ;)

  7. Hi Shari, I love your card you did a fabulous job with this sketch! I would love to use your card in a future Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown challenge. Please contact me at janhunni(at)gmail(dot)com so we can talk about it.
    Thanks, Jan =)
