Thinking of You

Good Morning my Crafty Friends!  I hope everyone is having a good week so far!  My mom's birthday was this past Sunday and she came over to my house to hang out with me and craft.  She wanted to know about sketches because she is fairly new to paper crafting.  So I printed a sketch from the computer (Mojo Monday 243) to play with and give her some ideas.  Following is the card I made.  

I used the original Wild Card Cartridge to cut my base at fit to page which made it 5 1/2 inches.  I then cut a circle from Plantain School Book for my circle layer and inked around the edges with some SU ink (sorry I don't remember which).  Next I hand cut the strips of paper from some scraps I had.  My adorable birdcage is from Lori's Garden Imagine Cartridge.  I printed and cut it at 2 1/2 inches using the layer feature and then popped up each layer with some foam tape.  Finally my sentiment is from CTMH and was stamped in the same SU ink I had used previously.  My square was punched using a small square punch then layer on top of some white paper that I hand cut around.  

My Mom had lots of fun and knows how to use a sketch now.  Can't wait to see what she comes up with!
