Have it your way....

The sketch that is! It's time for another wonderful OCC challenge. This week Wendy has this fun sketch for us - dress it up, or keep it clean and simple - it's up to you!

I went somewhere in between with my card, I kept to the sketch with just a few embellishments added and some bright papers for a bit of 'pop'.
I think these Greenhouse Gala papers might be my favourite SU pack ever. I've used the cute-as-a-button Aviary set and one of my old faves, Wonderful Words, for the sentiment. 

The inside of this card couldn't be more simple - I let the paper do all the work, doesn't that pattern leave a perfect space for writing in?

Head on over to Our Creative Corner to see what the team has created and we hope you'll link up your card too!

  1. Sarah I love how you have used the stand as the hanger for the bird cage.

  2. Lovely job on this week's challenge, Sarah! That paper is so bright and pretty and it really sets off the inside beautifully too! And the birdcage stamp is terrific!

    Have a great weekend.


  3. This is really pretty, Sarah - love how you used the papers, especially on the inside! Gorgeous!

  4. Great use of this DSP. I have some and you've inspired me to pull it out! Beautiful card.

  5. Sarah I always love your cards and this is no exception! I love the clean crisp feel of your card and that dsp is wonderful, it is perfect for the inside too! You've inspired me to pull out my pack of dsp and start creating!

  6. Sarah, this is a beautiful card. Great use of the DSP and I love the creative way you used the birdcage stand stamp!

  7. I bought this dp last July and then couldn't decide how to use it, thanks so much for sharing, I'm all inspired now.
