This week at CAS Colours and Sketches we have a lovely CAS sketch for you to have a play with, chosen by Kylie. I am sure you will find it very versatile, my problem was limiting my ideas to one! Here it is

I have made one small change, from a circle to an oval

I have had this DP for ages and I love it, although I've not found anything to do with it...until today. The birds in the cages give such a great background for the free bird, image from Nature Walk, and I've paper-pieced a little cage behind him with some nifty cutting!  I made one of the edges to the mat scalloped and have left lots of white space. The bird has a tiny black gem, giving him a 'beady' eye!
Do have a look at the creations from the rest of the DT.


  1. Wonderful card! I love your coloring on the bird!

  2. Nice job with the fussy cutting!
    And now that I've seen your post title, I will likely be hearing Lynyrd Skynyrd in my head the rest of the night... LOL!

  3. Your beady eyed bird is beautiful - love the background paper you have used too - Jacqueline xx
