Best birds Stamp Set by Stampin' UP

Case This Sketch #234

Today's card was inspired by a sketch challenge from Case This Sketch.  The bird image from the Best Birds stamp set is set upon the Burlap background stamp.  The simple color palette sets off the image nicely.  I flipped the sketch to a horizontal format to accommodate the larger sentiment from the Floral Phrases stamp set.

Washi Tape is often overlooked in the catalog.  It is actually a versatile element in the crafting arsenal.  I used the Basics Pack 3 Washi Tape to create the whimsical banner behind the "50" element.  I lined up the washi tape on a scrap of paper, trimmed it down and punched the ends in a banner with the Banner Triple punch.  I also used it inside the card to add a punch of color. So simple!
