This card is pretty simple, but I jazzed it up with my favorite Creative Charms Gradient Sticker Gems to make the birdie look like he's tweetin'!

Sandra said...

Your cards are fabulous Chris! I have a confession to make. If you visited my blog www.scrappinmomof1.blogspot.com you will see a pic from CATC of the castle that we used to decorate our space. My confession is that I copied the pic from the CATC website and you are the one who posted the pic there so thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I hope that you do not mind. I could not find any good pics of our castle on my computer to use for my blog today. You're a lifesaver!!! Thanks again.
