Yes, you are reading the title correctly – I had some spare time! This almost never happens! I decided to put aside a few things I “had” to do to play along with two great challenges: Pals Paper Arts and Mary Jo’s Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.
At first I was a bit stumped and almost decided to throw in the towel but I’ve been so focused on specific projects of late that I needed to do something “just because”.
I used a base of Riding Hood Red and then layered it with Confetti White and then Calypso Coral. The central panel is Basic Gray designer series paper. It was very hard for me not to do a ton of sponging or distressing but I don’t think that is what this card needs.
For the focal layer I stamped a bunch of the cages from Aviary on Confetti White and then a couple on some scraps which I cut out, stamped on some birds and adhered with dimensionals. I tied on a little Calypso Coral ruffled ribbon and a sentiment. This is half of a sentiment from On Your Birthday (those are the words I omitted).
A fun little card that I think may just go in the mail today!
Thanks for visiting and Happy Labour Day Weekend!
