verve sketch 3

One I have another card completed for the Verve release week challenge. Again we are celebrating world card making day with this challenge.

One winner from each sketch challenge will be picked to win a $25 gift certificate to the Verve Store, plus if you participate in all 5 challenges, you will  be eligible to win the entire Autumn release!

This is the sketch we had to work with for the 3rd challenge. I knew immediately my bird cages from the Stampin-Up "aviary" set would work on this layout.
I decided to stamp 3 of them and use the "from our home to yours" sentiment. It's part of the "bella's bloom" set also from Stampin-Up.

My designer paper is from the Stampin-Up "thoroughly modern" collection. The bermuda bay color is one I really like. I added some ribbon and that completed this card.

Other challenge entries:

The Ooh La La blog has a challenge for "nothing floral". I thought my little birdcages fit just fine into this competition.
The Stampin Sisters in Christ issued a challenge to create a card with anything pertaining to nature. So I am entering my little birdies as part of God's creation.

I will be back again later on, my blogger friends.
