Creative Sketches Aviary

It's Thursday and time for a challenge with Creative Sketches!

Today's challenge is the sketch shown here. No additional challenges this week for color or technique; just create a project (card, sb page, 3d.... anything) based on today's sketch. Remember to visit the CS site (linked above and below) to see what the other designers have shard this week!

Let your patterned paper do the work! Here this sheet from our Sunny Garden Designer Series Paper dresses the card from top to bottom. A strip of punched card stock and a bit of ribbon add detail to the center and set a base for our bird cages to rest. Although difficult to capture in a photo, the center cage shimmers with gold embossing and provides our main focal element.
A rub-on sentiment and Pearl jewels invite us to "delight in the day", a good sentiment for us all to remember!
