Sunday Sketches SS042 - Free as a Bird Stamp Set

Sunday Sketches SS042 Free as a Bird stamp set by Stampin' Up!

Each Sunday, I create a card using one of my card sketches. This week's sketch is number SS042.  Sketches can help to get your creativity fired up.  They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way.

You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout or change it up a bit. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal. Let your imagination run wild!
