Happiness Always

My mom bought me some beautiful ribbon yesterday and I just had to use it right away! Here it is in my DEEsign for the 2 Sketches 4 You challenge:

Here's the sketch:

And the DEEtails:

1. I chose the colors for this card based on the pretty ribbon. I'm using Bermuda Bay, Basic Gray, and Going Gray. I know the card looks more blue, but I promise, it's a teal color!

2. I stamped the bird cage image from my Happy Moments set in Basic Gray ink and cut it out. I also stamped a sentiment from my Whimsical Words set to go with the birdcage.

3. Then I created a layered mat with my three colors and adhered my images to it using dimensionals.

4. I also created a large mat with the grays for the card and tied my pretty ribbon onto it. I deviated a bit from the sketch here. I liked the ribbon so much and wanted to show it off a bit more, so I tied a bow on the side. Then I adhered the mat to the card.

5. I adhered my mat and images on top of the bow and there you have it!

Thanks for stopping by!
