Crystal Birds

I held off buying the "Friends 24/7" set forever, then ordered it with free credits.  Why did I wait so long?  (Probably, as the little birdy said, "Cheap!  Cheap!"  I get it honestly, right, Dad??) 

I used the catalog sample for this set as the springboard.  Now that I look at the two side-by-side, though, they're nothing alike.  Oh, ok, the background is the same technique and they both use the scallop edge punch.

I love the Poppin' Pastels background.  It's very soft and "old brocade-y," I think.  And it looks much prettier in person.

    I have done that before. And ink takes several days to wear off. Hope your day was good in spite of the razzleberry fingertips! =-)
