So Tweet...

It's a happy Monday, which means it's time for another sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. This week's the lovely Laura has come up with a really fun one and I hope you will all play along. If you haven't checked it out, you should know that there are some pretty terrific prizes in store for a talented paper-crafter selected as Card of the Week!

I decided I wanted to make a card to send to my mom-in-law, Susan. I usually wax poetic about how fabulous she is, so this time I thought I'd let my card do it for me. Susan LOVES birdhouses, so this digi-stamp from this week's sponsor was just perfect! Here are the details:

SPILLING THE BEANS
  1. Make card from card stock. Trim along bottom edge. Border punch card stock and adhere.
  2. Print dig-stamp, color, and trim. Re-print twice; color bird and wing. Fussy cut bird and adhere with foam tape.
  3. Trim blue card stock. Adhere bird panel. Attach ribbon and button. Adhere to card.
  4. Stamp sentiment. Punch and trim. Adhere with foam tape.

I hope you all have a "tweet" week!
