The Blue Bird of Happiness

Woo hoo!!! It's Friday!!! And we have another amazing sketch to play with at Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge!

I think I mentioned that I'm really lovin' all the chipboard and stickers that most of the major paper lines are offering to coordinate with their papers. I think they add a lot of punch to a card as an embellishment... and sometimes even as the main image!

My card features cardstock, DP and embellies from the Taylored Expressions June Key Ingredients kit, including the die cut flower and the little buttons. The blue bird (of happiness!) is a sticker from October Afternoon's Fly a Kite collection. I did stamp the swirl from a Papertrey Ink stamp set, but that's it for stamping. Now that I look at my card again, I think I should have done some stitching. Hmmm...

Isn't this a fun sketch? I can't wait to see what YOU do with it... and what the rest of the Sketch Crew has come up with. Those girls knock my socks off every week! And please help us welcome our new Sketch Crew member, Rosie Hughes!

Jami Sibley: More is More
Lori Craig: Make a Difference 
Melissa Sauls: In Stamping Mode
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper

Rosie Hughes: Love My Craft Room
Sherrie Siemens: Card Creme
and of course Taylor herself: Taylored Expressions

I'm so glad you stopped by to visit today. I've been pretty busy lately with lots of personal business and household things, which has kept me from blog surfing and commenting as much as I'd like to. I promise to get around to visit soon. In the meantime, thank goodness for Google Reader!

Have a wonderful day, my friends. I hope the blue bird of happiness pays you a visit!

For another awesome challenge, please scroll down for the monthly Claudia & Company challenge.
