Spread Your Wings

Good morning, dearies.

I am here to bring you another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.

Here is today's sketch. I thought it was a bit tricky..

And here is my card:

I pulled my inspiration from the patterned paper, which is from the Togetherness collection from Cosmo Cricket. One of the other patterns in this particular collection has little birdies on it, so that's where the idea for him came from. I used elements from Vintage Circles, Small, Little Box Labels, Earth Angel, and Very Vintage Labels No. 2. The bird was cut out using the Nesting Birds die from Spellbinders (I should have given him a wing, too!)

The sketch challenge will remain open until Thursday, 11:59 EST. You can link up your entry on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog. Top Mice will be announced along with the new sketch next Saturday! Be sure to visit the blog and check out what the other DT members and Mischief Makers have created for the sketch challenge!

Have a fantastic day - for those of you that celebrate it, enjoy your long Labor Day weekend!
