The card below is for my nephew at college. If all goes as planned, I will hopefully send him a card every week or at least every other week like I do Bethany. I know how much fun it is to get mail.

Paper: Really, Rust, Mellow Moss, Sahara Sand, Close to Cocoa
DSP: Really Rust
Ink: Really Rust, Mellow Moss
Accessories: eyelets (non-SU), corner rounder, Nestibilities circle die, oval punch, dimensionals
All supplies by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
For me, the best starting point is to have a sketch. Sometimes I will draw a sketch but usually I look in my folder at some MOJO sketches or click on over to Splitcoast for their card sketches. Today's card is from a MOJO sketch way back in January 2009, week 70. I saw this sketch and knew it was perfect for this stamp set.
When I stamped the bird cage, the stand was showing into the cage bottom piece. I stamped the cage again and cut out just the bottom section and taped it over the mistake. Not only did it cover my boo boo, it added dimension to my card and I liked it a lot better...was really pleased with the end result.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
