Lots of Happiness

Good morning, friends! Today is Tuesday, and you know what that means! (Haha, if you don't - its time for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge!)

Here is this week's sketch:

And here is my sample:

The fabulous birdcage stamps are from the Elegant Birds set from My Cute Stamps. I love these adorable, whimsical birdcages.

I stamped one of each size birdcage onto Lilykate patterned paper and cut them out. I did a little bit of masking to put the bird in the blue cage. I used a Spica glitter pen to add a bit of sparkle to each of the bird cages. The sentiment is also part of the set.

I stitched the satin ribbon to a strip of patterned paper and added the flourished brad to finish off the sketch. The completed card size is 4 inches by 7 inches.

Make sure you stop by Mercy's blog to find the links to the DT members and check out their sketches.
