Apartment Building

I wanted to make a card for fun this week so I decided to play in Sassy Cheryl's challenge. The challenges are all about pink this month and this one adds a sketch.

Now, I must admit that I am not a fan of sketches because I never seem to be able to do them justice.  I know, I'm weird but I actually find them harder to work with when they should make it easy.  After I finished the card I realized that this will be a great sketch for Christmas cards since they call for clean and simple or you have to float a loan for the postage (remember my story about last year).

Sassy Cheryl draws such fun images and I thought I could use this one for all sorts of occasions. It reminds me of an apartment building for birds. What a great place to hang out.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Sassy Cheryl's - Pink with Sketch

  4. I can understand not wanting to do the sketch challenges. Like it puts 'limits' on ya. :) And I know how you don't like that. :)
    Regardless, I think your card is stunning, but that's always a given with you! Lovin' the bow and butterfly too, but my favorite are the little button/brads.
