a little bird told me....


This is for Kazan's sketch 24 over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I knew that I wanted to use my new American Crafts Backyard papers...yup, once again I bought about 4 sheets...1 of each design. They are sooo super sweet...I fussy cut the bird and his home which I then nestled onto ginormous glue dot pop dots...The green scallop pieces are sewn onto the blue scallops...A fabulous sketch to showcase the sweet American Crafts papers...I was thinking of smacking on ribbon and flowers but decided I liked the crispness of the card, as is, without the extra embellies.
