THE WRITE STUFF for SWEET SUNDAY

I can't get enough of this Two-Step Bird Punch! It has quickly become one of my favorite punches ... and to think I almost didn't order it! I've paired this bird image with The Write Stuff designer paper pack featuring the colors or Ruby Red, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, and Old Olive. The flower is a die cut from The Write Stuff designer paper pack, adorning an Old Olive button with a sliver of Crushed Curry card stock as "thread". The sentiment is from the stamp set, Well Scripted.

Today's card is for Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #66 ... can you believe this fun sketch?! Won't you play along?! For more inspiration, visit the blogs of the other Sweet Sunday Stampers ...

Very cute Nancy. I didn't order that punch either, thinking, "how often would I use that punch?" But it didn't take long until I saw so many cute cards I had to have it and it is now one of my favorites as well. It looks great with the flower button combo.
