Just a note

I really loved this week's Mojo Monday sketch so I decided to play along . I used the image "Victorian Bird Cage" from Meljen's available at Whimsy Stamps.

I have to admit I was never a fan of images with bird cages, but absolutely love this one as the bird is outside the cage, and I think it would be just perfect for a "new home" card, or a "I will miss you" card.


That was just the the type of card I wanted/needed to make, but couldn't find my only "I miss you" stamp and I didn't feel like making my own today. So I just decided to use the "Just a note" stamp because this way I can add my own writing on the inside anyway.

I used papers from Stampin Up. Embellished with some white grosgrain ribbon, a tiny prima flower with sticky pearl and then did some sewing with my janome mini.

A pretty clean and simple card, I think this image is so elegant looking, that this simple sketch is just perfect for it.

Here are a few challenges I combined:
Thanks so much for stopping by, I'll be back tomorrow with my design team card for stamp something, hope you'll check back!

Have a great day!!
