Spread Your Wings and Fly

Hi there, popping in to share a card for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge.  Not my usual colors, but I found these Fancy Pants rub ons that I've had for months and never opened.  They went perfectly with the challenge and I thought the little bird was adorable.  I made this when at the end of my scrapbook day on Saturday.

And, it was a happy day yesterday...I saw myself in print for the first time in February CARDs Magazine.  Of course, it was the on-line version, but I can't wait to get my hands on the hard copy!
Ingredients:  Stampin' Up Green Cardstock; Fancy Pants Patterned Paper and Rub Ons; Bazzill Basics Ribbon

  4. I love that orange paper and the bird is so cute!
    Congrats on your first publication! How exciting! I just got an online subscription so I could check it out. (I'd rather have the hard copy but the international subscription rates are a little out of my budget at the moment!) Both cards are gorgeous but I especially love the thank you card. :)
