Addicted to Stamps - Sketch Challenge #1

Hello hello ~

I've been too busy zooming around in my new car to get other things done...not really, but it has been one of THOSE weeks.  I'm late with my Addicted to Stamps post so without further ado here it is.

Kylie gave us a sketch to work with this week and I must admit to taking a few creative liberties with this one.  Check out the sketch and you'll see what I mean.

I've used Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla with the cute Aviary stamp set.  I fussy cut the bird cage and popped it up on dimensionals and added a rhinestone to the top where it connects with the twine it is supposedly hanging from.

If you're up for a sketch challenge this week head over to ATS and check out the inspiration from the design team. We love visiting your blogs and checking out all the awesome creations you come up with.
