Twinkling Tuesday: Vintage Sparrow

Good afternoon girls! It's Tuesday and we have another great (challenging) sketch this week to work with! Be sure to visit the Twinkling Tuesday blog and see what our featured designer Kim created with this sketch!

Madelynn gave her brother Jack another chance to design a sketch for us and boy did he come up with something great! The first time I looked at it I thought "ooooh, nice". Then it came time to actually create my card and I thought "hmmmm, how to handle those horizontal bits?" The possibilities were endless!

I slept on it actually and decided on lace and a vintage feel. The lace is from my local Walmart; every so often I find some lace packaged up in these plastic balls for $1. The velvet ribbon at the top is from 2RedBananas.
I stuck close to Jack's sketch this week and love how it turned out! I hope you'll play along with us this week too! Be sure to visit the rest of the team and see what they've come up with!

Cassie - this is such a pretty card! I love the lace and vintage look about it. I'll have to check my local Wally world for some inexpensive lace. You did beautiful work, and its' a great interpretation of the sketch!

Ahhh! Now that's just a great idea to use the ribbon as the horizontal details! Love the soft, vintage look to this card Cassie. I can't believe you're still with us even with all the stuff you have going on! I bet you don't stop moving most days, do you? :D Try to have a relaxing weekend won't you? hehehe
