Day 4 GIU Itty Bitty birdhouse

Hi Ladies and Gentlemen! I truly appreciate all of you who have been by this week and left me wonderful comments, I have had so much fun reading all of them! Tonight is a short (pre-scheduled) post since I am away from home at a girlfriends house playing cards. I know you all appreciate the value of this since I am a stay at home mom, LOL!

So here is today's card!
I used a technique my friend taught me this week. You use a baby wipe to wipe away the portion of the background stamp that you want to stamp you main image in. Not rocket science I know, but her card was stunning. Mine not so much, but it was my first attempt.

I am lovin my WeRMemory Keepers paper lately and how about that fab flower. I used my Maya Road satin pleated ribbon and an American crafts brad.  My inks are all over the chart on this card, Momento, Colorbox and a random unlabled ink from my stash...Oh yes and my new Tim Holtz distress ink in antique linen (thanks for enabling Natalie, hehehe).

Hope you all enjoyed! Now back to the card game at hand :) <3
