Birds on Wires Card

Hi everyone

Today I have a card to share, that I made to enter into the following challenges:

Paper Smooches SPARKS - Designer Drafts May 14-20

Moxie Fab World - Tuesday Trigger

Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Clean and Simple

PaperCrafts Connection - Gallery Idol

Here's the card I made:

I used the overall design of the SPARKS sketch, and the colors from the tuesday trigger. I drew lines onto a piece of white cardstock with a pencil, stamped bird silhouettes in different colors, and went over the pencil lines with a grey marker. I made a mistake with the marker, and went right over the one orange bird that overlapped a line. To remedy the situation, I stamped out one more bird in each color, cut them out, and adhered them overtop of their corresponding birds. That covered up the mistake on the orange bird, and gave some more definition to a few of the birds as well. I stamped the sentiment in two of the colors I had used for the birds, and adhered the white panel onto a kraft cardbase using foam adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Hi Marie! I LOVE your CAS approach to the sketch! I can relate to your story about your little mistake. I've had a few of those myself. ;) It's wonderful when you can save a card and even make it a BETTER card in the process. This is just so ADORABLE! Glad you played along with us in this week's Sparks Challenge!!!
