Little Birdie

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  As it is the 5th Wednesday of the month, we have a fabulous sketch for your inspiration:
No automatic alt text available.
And here is the card I created:
 I created a fun interactive card for a young teen boy at our church.  The stamp set is designed to work on a swing card, but I've found there are a lot of different ways to use these types of sets.  I have the first image and sentiment (which I cut apart from the image so I could use it in different ways) on the front of a little pocket I created.  Into the pocket I place a little card with a pull tab.
 After you pull it out, you find the second image and second sentiment:
 I so love the smug look on this cats face!  He definitely enjoyed that little bird!  On the inside I used the rest of the sentiment (it is part of the cat image, but I masked it so I could add only the sentiment) and added a lighter stamping of the bird for some interest.

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you hop over to the House blog for all the details and to see what the rest of the team created.  And if you need any of the stamps I used, make sure you check out the 10% off your entire order coupon over in my left sidebar.

Oh how much fun is this - and I have this set. I've been wanting to make a slider card and I think this would work great with this stamp.

Oh my goodness Heather,

I am still laughing at your funny card - I did not fully notice at first, wondering why there were two images, the bird then the cat (a very happy satisfied looking cat I might add) so I took a minute and when I did, well lets just say I almost spit my coffee onto my keyboard. Oh gracious its sooooo funny!

Thanks for the laugh with your fun card!
