...because it has a song - MFTWSC #52

Are you ready for this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge? Here’s this week’s sketch. You can find the sketch on the MFT blog and also in the MFT forum on SCS, as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

I brought out the very first set in the Inspired by line - Inspired by Caged Bird. That set started my love affair with the Inspired by line and it's never wavered. 

I pretty much kept the sketch intact this week for a change ;-) I stamped the cage, matted it, and popped it up on foam. I added a Little Open Scallops Strip Die-namics to the vertical element and used wide striped ribbon for the fishtail element. I stamped the bird in flight, cut it out, and popped it up, as well. Everything was sponged with some Antique Linen Distress Ink to keep the Vintage feel going.

Here's the inside with another stamped bird and a well-loved sentiment from the set.

Thanks SO much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for another January teaser!
