Bird Call

Stamps: None
Card Stock: The Chocolate Box (core'dinations), Not Quite Navy, Urban Garden
Ink: None
Accessories: Ribbon (Stamp Simply Store), Bird Call Cuttlebug folder, Dotted Wave punch (EK Success), Jumbo Grommet

I didn't use any stamps or inks with this card, and I like it anyhow. I used my Bird Call Cuttlebug folder from Eclectic Paperie, and my Chocolate Box papers (core'dinations). I sanded down the design to make it pop. The little strip of designer paper is Urban Garden (SU), and I punched the edge with my Dotted Wave punch. The yummy ribbon is from Sharon Johnson's store, and I use a new Jumbo Grommet (SU) as well.

Happy Sunday...and thanks for stopping by!

AAAhhh, this is soooo wonderful. I have some of that paper and I must try this, now. (Although I don't have this beautiful folder.) I also seriously need to do some shopping at Sharon's ribbon store when her blog is back online. Love that ribbon on your card.
