(Freshly Made) Sketch #36

I wasn't going to make any challenge cards this week, but after I had organised everything today, I wondered what I would do with the rest of my Sunday!!!
 Taking a look at the sketch for this week at Freshly Made Sketches, I decided to make this card using the Aviary Stamp Set, a set I received when I joined Stampin' Up. My main worry was deciding which colours to use and after trying out a few combinations I settled on More Mustard and Basic Grey, with a little Always Avocado ink thrown in for good neasure.

Using the Decorative label punch to cut the three shapes for the left side of the sketch, I also added a Glimmer Brad to each. A layer of Domestic Goddess paper in grey was placed under the Whisper White with the stamped images, including the Happy Day to you greeting from stamp set Friendly Phrases. The branch is the Thoughts and Prayers Stamp set. So just a simple little card, using a clean and simple plan. Forgot to add, it hasn't caught them very well in my night time photo but there is a row of 3 rhinestones on the bottom of the cage and a slightly bigger rhinestone up the top.
Thanks for taking a look at my blog, happy stamping everyone!
