The Birds of Spring

Yeah it's Friday! I created a card this morning for the Moxie Fab World challenges: Postage and Lace/Doily


My main image of the birds and branches is from Le Blanche.  I stamped it originally on regular cardstock and didn't like how it didn't get all the details.  I pulled out the Le Blanche paper which has a matte finish and stamped again and it made a world of difference.  The paper also absorbs the distress inks beautifully and was fun to play with.

The postage stamps are from Stampendous and the sentiment is from Memory Box.  

Hope you have a lovely Friday!
