this card which I discovered by seeing this card by another one of my favourite stampers Andrea Walford, who's Blog I subscibe to. I used Haiku DSP with colours that co-ordinate & of course the Bird Punch, I love it sitting ontop of the Tags. The only thing I wasn't happy about this card was the hole punch size that the Linen thread is tied through, I should have just pierced it or used the smaller handheld one (which I've just ordered!) I must make another when it comes in & try some other DSP, I just love the layout & I'm thinking my Heart Bikini would look good to.

I made this card in my masculine marathon I challenged myself to (13 cards in 2 nights) yes they were late ones & a few I cased. I often hear from fellow card makers that they find it difficult to come up with something original that they are really happy with & I to sometimes feel the same, so when this happens I surf the net & as I see something I like I sketch & write it in a notebook, it may be just a colour combo & or stamp set combo or layout, this is more than enough inspiration to get creating, I even get inspired by looking through my own card stash that I've kept for that reason.
