Fly Free

Another take on the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.  I combined a mix of old and new products for this card.  The stamp set is courtesy of The Craft’s Meow by Nina B Designs.  The Craft’s Meow sponsored the weekly challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenges of which I was the lucky winner!  Supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Collection
Fly Free by The Craft’s Meow
X7132B Bliss Paper Packet (retired)
Z2111 Chocolate Ink
Z2211 Chocolate Re-Inker
Z1732 Seam Binding Ribbon
Chocolate Chip Grosgrain by SU
Z1333 Mocha Adhesive Gems
Gold Glow Smooch Spray by Clearsnap
Log Cabin Smooch Spray by Clearsnap
Z1114 Piercing Tool Kit
The decorative circle and circle shape were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  I hand cut the banner and the matting on the bird cage. The ribbon was dyed with chocolate re-inker and then scrunched up to dry.  I have entered this card in the following challenges:

Crafts and Me -Things with wings
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs - Something Old (papers)/New(stamps)
Just Some Lines -Spring Cleaning time (paper, gems, grosgrain ribbon are all over 6 months old)
