Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 231-Spread Your Wings and Fly

It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  The large round panel on this sketch was just perfect for showing off one of the beautiful sentiments from the Reverse Confetti Paper Crane set.

Spread Your Wings and Fly card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Reverse ConfettiAfter die cutting a pierced circle from white cardstock, I stamped the "spread your wings and fly" sentiment on the circle in red pigment ink.  I stamped the set's crane image on a scrap of Sahara Sand cardstock and cut it out, then used foam tape to adhere it to the open space near the top of the round panel.

To go with the angular look of the crane, I found a piece of triangle patterned paper to cover most of the Sahara Sand cardfront.  I ran a strip of red cardstock across the top of the patterned paper panel, then added a trio of coordinating fishtail flag strips along the left side of the card.  Once the strips were in place, I layered the sentiment panel on top.  I accented it with a trio of rose colored enamel dots.

To play along, just create a card based on the sketch and link it up on Karen’s blog. For lots of inspiration be sure to check out what the other Sweet Sunday Sketch stampers have created for you this week. Here’s where to find them:
