Skylark and the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

I'm playing along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge this week and I thought I would continue using my favorite Close To My Heart papers, Skylark.  You can see the sketch my cards are based on here.  Be sure to cruise around their blog a bit as there is a lot of fabulous artwork there. 

Part of the beauty of the Skylark papers are the exquisite drawings on one of the sheets. I wanted to use the beauty of the paper itself for the focal point of my cards.  Only one stamp was used between the two cards, the "Thinking of you" on the first card. 
I have a fascination and love of birds, so the "perfect day" sentiment torn from the zip strip sums up what I feel when watching 'my' birds at the feeders or in flight.  

Hope you enjoy my cards and the other entries at the AHSC blog.  

Supplies I used:
X7177B - Skylark Paper Pack
Z1929 - Topiary Mini Chevron Ribbon
Z1853 - Aqua Dots
Z1850 - Lagoon Houndstooth Washi Tape
D1525 - Casual Expressions (Thinking of You stamp)
