Little 4th Birdie!

Good Afternoon, well I am a little disappointed on how this card came out. I bought this little hat from Amuse and new I could put it on all kinds of animals I had. I decided to go with my little birdie from imaginise. I really loved how my image came out but the rest well...I don't know, I fussed with this ribbon treatment and the dp I used gave me a hard time too. So after too much fussing I decided well this is it. I used the sketch for Mojo Monday! Great sketch..... Here it is!! Go check out the blog it is really fun! Thanks for stopping by today!!

Here is my recipe

Imaginise Little Birdie
Amuse 4th of July Hat
