Tweet Tweet Little Birdie

This week the challenge at Less Is More is "birds and one layer".....
the only hard thing for me this week was deciding "which" bird stamps to use!!
I had some fun with this one....
I stamped the bird first on my white cardstock...
stamped him again on some scrap paper to make a mask...
then I used the negative of a heart cut out and sponged TH distressed ink (Victorian Velvet)
the bird was stamped with SU Chocolate Chip...and the bird stamp...it was $1 at Michaels...
I stamped the little "Love" sentiment in the blank part of the "envelope"...
I squirted a bit of red Stickles out and used a pin to apply in the shape of a heart for a bit of "bling"...
let me know how you like it.....

If you couldn't decide which bird stamp to use, does that mean that we may see some more from you this week? I hope so. This is great.
Thanks so much
