A Little Birdie Told Me...

Hi everyone! Guess what? A little birdie told me that it's Fabby Friday today over at Tiddly Inks! Here's my card using Ricky - Hanging Around. The sentiment on the front is also included in the digital and clear stamp sets.

This was the card I made for my Dad on Grandparents Day. I was inspired to color the little boy like my son. He might be a little young to be swinging upside down from trees but he's definitely a big fan of his Pop-Pop!!

I made a little scene behind him using distress inks to create clouds in the sky and a Spellbinders Border die to cut the rolling hillside. The tree branch is tucked behind the red stitched mat and is popped up with dimensionals.

Here's a close-up:

As you can see, I'm also a big fan of these stitched mats. Definitely a new favorite in my collection!
