Tweet Thing

This is my second inspiration card for The Crafter's Cafe Blog Hop using the sweet "Love Birds" image from A Creative Need. I distressed the edges of all the layered pieces and sanded the embossed piece to give this a woodsy feel. I like the way it turned out! I was just too pooped last night to get it on the blog, so I saved it for today to make the fun last just a tad longer! The Hop has been a blast, and I'm proud to share this experience with so many talented paper artists! All the sponsors have been so generous to allow us the use of their images for inspiration cards! Be sure you head back to The Crafter's Cafe tomorrow for lots more fun, games and prizes all day long, ending with a Craft N Chat at 8 PM EST!
