One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Combining Retro Sketches with the theme Birds...

Today I am going to use the Sketch # 61 from Retro Sketches and the Element Challenge from Festive Friday which is to include a "bird" in our projects.
This sketch allows for a really CAS card, which I am really enjoying making...keeping things clean and simple! 
This is what I used:  all products Papertrey!
stamps:  Peace be Still
ink:  autumn rose, ripe avocado
paper:  white, autumn rose
twine and button from PTI
IP:  linen
dimensionals:  Dots from here look at her sidebar to go to her etsy and purchase a bag of 1,000!!


  1. Oh Colleen, this is one of my favourites from you, for sure! I love the CAS design, and you did such a great job with the sketch. I like how you used the bird WAY better than what I did with it!!

  2. Very nice, Col. Good job on combining both challenges.

  3. I love this, Colleen! So serene and gorj rose color!!

  4. So, SO nice, Colleen!!! Such a pretty CAS design! I just love that bird with the single little sprig! And each and every element is perfectly placed here! So happy to see you back with this lovely creation!
