I am continuing to make the thank you cards I need now that I have my PC up and running! I don't have too many punches so having my darling Cricut and Cricut Design Studio is so essential to me :)....
This is what my take on the sketch:
I turned again to this week's Eat Sleep Stamp ESS Sketch #31, where I found it to be a perfect sketch to use my A MUSE stamps - since they tend to be small and single - and would fit just right in 1 1/2'' circles :)...
The rounded square frame I used was done with the help of my Cricut. And once I had that done, I was in business!
This card was all made out of scraps :)! I sanded the embossed texture paper to give it more definition. I used a clear atyouSpica marker to color the bird house to match the glittered pattern paper. Adding the rhinestones was a last minute decision and it turned out okay :)... this was a FUN sketch and I'm pretty happy with the results! Check out Tracy Clemente's blog for more on her weekly FUN sketch challenges; and while you are there check out her blog; she is very creative! :)
