My Kind of Tweet: Creative Cafe' December KOTM

No, I don't "tweet" this card created with The Rubber Cafe' December KOTM, Take Flight and the Soaring Above stamp set, is more my kind of tweet:

Base:  5&1/2" by 4&1/4" peach cardstock

Next I used the vine stamp and Versamark ink to create a patterned paper effect at the top:

TIP:  remember to start in the middle, then stamp the outer edge images, then fill it in from there.  It makes it easier to get even spacing.

Next I added a 3" by 4" piece of black lattice pattern paper with a 1" strip of striped pattern paper peeking out and glued that to the bottom of the card using Scrap Happy Glue.

Then I added ribbon and a bow to a 1" by 4" strip of peach cardstock.  I cut two little banners, brushed them with Black Soot Distress Ink, and added them to the card under the ribbon/cardstock strip.

The bird stamp was inked in Versamark and embossed using black embossing powder, then fussy cut out.

The frame is die cut from patterned papers using the Spellbinders Classic Ovals, and Scallop Ovals.  The bird was foam taped to this, then the sentiment stamped in Black Tuxedo Memento Ink and added to a little banner, and foam taped to the oval.  The oval is foam taped to the top of the card, and a few rhinestones add a little bling.

Thanks for stoppin' by today....hope you enjoyed my "tweet out" to you today!
