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!
The Free as a Bird cling stamp set used for today's card is a classic. This stamp set made with Stampin' Up! 's premium red rubber will be one of those stamp sets that never goes out of style. It is great for men, women and children alike.
