Wings of Friendship Card

I chose this Stampin' Up! "Wings of Friendship" set a while ago because I thought it was sweet and I never used it. I didn't even have it put together. Sheeeeeesh! What is wrong with me? It's such an adorable set. SO tonight I thought I would put it together and perhaps make a card with it. Well, I actually accomplished both. Oh and I did put ALL of the pieces to the set together and not just the bird! I've been known to do that.

I have a photo album that I keep all of the SplitCoast Sketch Challenge card layouts in. SO I picked up the bird stamp and paged through the book looking for a layout that would support the image. I got to SC75 and stopped. I told myself to pick the first one I come across that works. I didn't want to have to make any other decisions! Just find one and go with it. SO I did. And it was one that I had never done before too. I started doing the Wednesday Sketches at #125 and I've done all most all of them since. I should go back to the beginning of the book and make a card using the sketches I haven't done yet but I figure eventually in time I will get to them. See, I already got one done tonight!

I did use the "Very Vintage" jumbo wheel on the Crushed Curry background pieces. I tried to give the card a vintage look. I used Old Olive on the background piece. Behind the Crushed Curry strips I used a piece of Basic Gray. And the bird was stamped on Very Vanilla. I colored in the image with markers. The flowers and ribbon are Melon Mambo. I did cut out the flowers and put them in place using Dimensionals. I wanted to give the bottom part of the card a bit of dimension. It was just enough too!

This card can be used for quite a few occasions, birthdays, get well, thinking of you and Mother's Day. You can add those sentiments on the front or leave it as it is and write on the inside.

I ran across a couple of notebooks that I want to alter the fronts with this bird or maybe the one from the 24-7 set. I haven't put that one together yet either!!! I need to find more time to play! It's a lot more fun than cooking and cleaning.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
