Create with Connie and Mary – Aviary

Another sketch challenge for you to try over on Create with Connie and Mary's Thursday Challenge I have to admit that at first I was challenged on what set to use.  Once I decided on Stampin' Up!'s Aviary stamp set, the card came together pretty easily!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team did this week with CCMC143!

 

 

And here is my card…nice, bright colors, huh?

 

 

I started by pulling out the free Sale-A-Bration Designer Paper, Ice Cream Parlor!  Sale-A-Bration is fast coming to an end…don't lose out on your chance to get FREE products!    I took my colors from the Designer Paper, using Daffodil Delight for the base of my card.  I added on a layer of Pacific Point cardstock, and the Designer Paper. 

 

For the focal point, I stamped the cage from Aviary in Early Espresso Classic Ink on Whisper White, then the owl from Aviary in Pumpkin Pie inside.  I added the Pumpkin Pie 5/8 Grosgrain Ribbon bow on the top, secured with a Pear Pizzazz Glimmer Brad.  I layered the Whisper White on Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  For the accents on the sides, I used the 1" and 1 1/4" Circle Punches and staggered them towards the center.  I used Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz and Early Espresso Stampin' Write Markers to color the birds.  Finally I stamped Get Well Wishes from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Early Espresso and punched with the Word Window punch, layered on a Pumpkin Pie Modern Label punch.

 

I think the cheerful colors would make anyone "get well" faster!

 

Again, check over on Create with Connie and Mary to see what the Design Team did, then make your own creation using the sketch and Stampin' Up! Only supplies…we love seeing what you do!  Upload it over on Inlinkz at our site!
