Today just called for a cute and simple (CAS) type of card today. I thought I would finally get to the Swapping Sistahs kit Ren-Yi sent us for June too. Yes, the kit was supposed to be for June, and here it is July! (Sorry Ren-Yi!) Once I dug into it though, and with some inspiration from the latest Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch, this card came together quite easily. Unfortunately I started right away and didn't take a picture of the papers that were sent....oops! I did use three of the four provided and supplemented with some green that went with my focal image, which was part of a patterned paper of birds and birdcages...very cute!

So here's the sketch:

And here's my take:

Enjoy! And be sure to check out the other ladies in our little swap, including 2010 Gallery Idol winner Belinda! Yea, that's right, I know a paper-crafting!

You did a great job of pulling all the elements together for this card. The bird cage made a nice focal point for the card.
