Thursdays with Lindsay - Anniversary Blog Hop!

Good Morning!  Happy tax day!  OK - I'm not real thrilled about it either, but...  Let's talk about something really exciting.  Today is the 3rd day of Lindsay's Stamp Stuff 3 day Anniversary blog hop.  There's been a crop going on in the MyGrafico Virtual Crop Room.  There's been prizes.  And everything is 50% off at Lindsay's MyGrafico shop. If you came here from Rhonda's blog (fabulous project, eh?!) then you're on the right track.  If not, start at Lindsay's blog here.


I shared this snippet the other day in the Crop Room, so I hope it brought some people over here to see what I did.  Here's what I did...


I kept the card clean and simple because, well, simply put - the focal image was hard enough!  I went out to my backyard and found some really cool twigs.  I then cut them down to create a frame around the image.  I used an image from the Birds and Branches set.  I then glued the twigs down but then to secure them I used twine and a needle to tie them to the card stock.  I'm not pleased with this photo because it makes the ribbon look black, it's actually a rich chocolate brown.  This card also fits the challenge over at KL Stampin' n Scrappin' blog.

I have a give away, too.  One lucky commenter on my blog today will receive the entire Birds and Branches set just by leaving me a comment.  You don't have to become a follower if you don't want to.



Now on to your next stop on the blog hop which is Cassandra.  Have fun on the hop and have fun shopping!
