Feathered Friday...

I have good news and bad news, which would you like to hear first?

The bad news is...
Cornish Heritage Farms temporarily delayed its' release of Mona Lisa's stamp sets until next week.

Now for the good news...
Your viewing a taste of Cardmaker's Shapes and Essential Expressions that will debut next week! Do you like how I used the OVAL image to make a "grove" of Poplar trees?!

Okay... now for the explanation of Feathered Friday's. I'm quite infatituated with birds of nature, not to mention my collection of stamp related birds. What better challenge than to create a bird themed card weekly?! Okay, so I slipped in two birds this week... the other's perched here if you missed it! *wink*

Xtra -
1. Re-inforce intricate punched images by stacking and adhering between layers.
2. Sponge using a sandwich baggie.

I love this really "earthy" card. So simple for a grove of poplars and the tiny-teeney bird is awesome! Love it!
