Simply Said

It's just about Wed., and that means it's time for me to do one of Rox's sketch challenges on SCS. I loved the simplicity of this one, so I kept mine very simple. All the images are Hero Arts and can be found at Michelle's store Stampers Dreams.
The top panel bg is a gorgeous flourish!! And I mean gorgeous!!! It is so finely detailed it's amazing!!! I embossed it in white with SU white craft ink and white ep. I love the soft look of it! The sentiment and flower stamps are from Hero Arts Clear Design Thinking of you messages. What a fun variety!! Different fonts, shapes, frames, and flowers. I'll be using these a ton!!! I thought the sentiment fit that lone bird in the cage. You know, the one special bird that sings to you every morning....
Anyway, all the panels are lightly sponged with SU blush blossom, and the flowers are colored with a sakura souffle pen. These are my absolute favorite colored pens to use. They never clog up, and they disperse ink so evenly!! Love 'em!!

That's it....sweet and simple. Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the week!!

GORGEOUS card! The Penny Black Scrolling Along stamp is great on this card! I wouldn't have though of using it here. And the sentiment is perfect for the bird in the cage. Great job....I love everything about it!
