Beate Weekend Sketch #41

Here is my take on Beate's latest sketch challenge. I used the Anniversary Birds set from Verve Visual. I just LOVE these birds. . .so cute. The paper is from the Hostess Prints Pack from Stampin' Up. I added my favorite embellishment in the world, paper piercing/faux stitching. It is so hard for me NOT to add that to a card. I guess we all have our addictions. LOL Be sure and see what Beate, Cambria, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, Mary Jo and Sharon have come up with for this sketch. I'm sure they will be wonderful, as always! Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful Friday! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Anniversary Birds (Verve Visual); Paper- Prints Pack, Whisper White, Basic Black (SU); Ink- Real Red, Basic Black (SU); Accessories- brads (Making Memories), paper piercer, Basic Black marker, slit punch, hole punch, black organdy ribbon (Darice)
