Thanks Tweety Bird


Hi everyone! I meant to post this card earlier but my husband surprised me with tacos and a movie tonight, how sweet is that!!! We went to Due Date which is totally hiliarious!!! So I'm popping in before bedtime to share a card I created with this cute little boy digital stamp from Sliekje Digi Stamps!

My card base is Chocolate Chip layered with a slightly smaller piece of Glossy Silver cardstock then Bashful Blue patterned paper from the Stampin' Up Prints Pack. I distressed the edges of the patterned paper with a sponge and Chocolate Chip ink as well as with an edge distresser so I guess you could say the edges are double distressed! The green strip is Certainly Celery finished on each side using the Diamond Edge Punch. I then covered it with a strip of Silver Magic Mesh.

The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers. I die cut and embossed it with Labels Two Nestabilites then distressed the edges with Chocolate Chip ink. I die cut a larger label from Chocolate Chip cardstock for the shadow layer. To embellish the card I added a medium silver brad in each corner.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
