Bird Watching

I've used some more new birthday goodies on today's card...this time it's the papers (which are by Craft Creations). The image I've used is a cute House Mouse stamp called 'Bird Watching'...I stamped this a couple of years ago whilst visiting my lovely bloggy friend Samantha...and it's been waiting patiently to be used since then! I inked the edges of everything using 'Faded Jeans' Distress Ink, then distressed them before adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Critter Party' set, and the Card Candi is from Craftwork Cards.
