Freshly Made Sketches #83

Happy Wednesday!  I feel like this has been a long week!  Today is a very special day at Freshly Made Sketches!  Today we are all celebrating Vicki Burdick's Birthday!  If you don't know Vicki she is one talented card maker!  She designs with the fabulous Lesley Croghan on the Merry Monday Team!  If you still aren't sure head on over to her blog, It's a Stamp Thing! You will not be disappointed!  We all hope Vicki has a wonderful birthday!

Today's sketch is brought to us courtesy of the lovely and talented Allisa Chilton!  I must say I found the sketch a little challenging!  I couldn't find a "long" stamp or image I wanted to use so I decided to get out my Aviary stamp set!  Who doesn't love some birdcages?!

I really do love the new Epic Day DSP!  The colours are just so fun and fabulous!  I just had to use it!  Of course there probably aren't any Calypso Coral owls or Pool Party birds but there are on this card!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla
DSP: Epic Day
Stamps: Aviary, Bloomin' Marvelous
Ink: Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Basic Black
Other: Basic Rhinestones, Pool Party Ribbon, Dimensionals

I hope you have a few minutes to head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the beautiful birthday cards the Design Team has created!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Birthday Vicki!
