{ nice springy card }

I bought this gorgeous Crate Paper - Birdie Collection last week when I had that amazing shopping day with Jill. Before the store even opened for their incredible 40% off the entire store sale I spotted this pack of paper through the window, but once we got in there it was gone!

Thankfully Jill was able to find it on another shelf for me! Isn't it beautiful! I had to show the inside of the card as well so you could see that the card stock is double sided. The clear scallop circle sticker over the main image is by A Muse. Pretty cool, eh? The narrow ribbon was from Costco and the wide ribbon was from Michael's.

To color the image I took Stephanie's suggestion and used a blender pen with chalk. It sorta chewed the paper up a bit, which is annoying. Maybe on different card stock it would be better. This is SU whisper white. I received the scallop circle punchies as a RAK. I'm still debating if I should get the circle punches. If one of my local stamping friends got the circles then we could use each other's (hint, hint). :-)
