Wednesday Sketch Challenge

I can not believe it's Wednesday already. My how these days are flying.

I have actually now used the two images from the Stampin' Up! "Spring Song" set. I bought this set because I LOVED this bird. And it sat in the container until a few weeks ago when I used the hummingbird for one of the Wednesday Sketch Challenges.

This challenge was fun. I LOVE that big piece in the background. It kind of sets the mood for the card. I also LOVE the "To the Nines" textured decorative paper. It's SO rich looking plus it's a GREAT paper to use on masculine cards.

Materials used here are:
Basic Black card stock
Very Vanilla Card stock
Stampin' Up! 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" Circle Punches
Stampin' Up! Scallop circle punch
Martha Stewart branch punch
Stampin' Up! button
Stampin' Up! To the Nines Decorative Paper
Blender Pen
Stampin' Up! "Spring Song" stamp set
Sage Shadow ink pad

There's lots of pieces on this card but that is what I LOVE to do when making cards. Ok, I love it only when I am making one card. If I had to make anymore than this I don't think I would have enjoyed all the layers! LOL

Oh, the words on the card were done on the computer. I set it up to make 4 columns and I repeat the words until the page is full. Making sure I leave space between them for punching out. Then I print the page on usually Whisper White card stock but sometimes I print it out on Very Vanilla at the same time. Then when I need it I just go to my pile of words and punch it out.

Anyway, back to the card. It's even a great masculine birthday card. You could even remove the "happy birthday" and make it into a Father's Day card. That is coming up quickly too. First I need to get to the Mother's Day ones and Graduation!! And I have few birthdays in between there too!

I do like my card this week. It's rare I say that!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
