Oh for the love of PAPER!!!!! or NO THIS IS NOT DSP

........................
I used a mask from a punched bird and sponged these little guys. Then I stamped over them with some fun images. For these cards I wanted to incorporate a few challeneges too so, the designs are for Pals Paper Art for using Soft Suede, Early Espresso and my fave River Rock as a color scheme, Crazy 4 Challenges has a wrap it up theme for gift bags or boxes, and Our Craft Lounge wanted distressed images, and Our Creative Corner was looking for a masculine card and the clean non frill design works for that!!!! ENJOY! Hey remember to leave a comment to join in on the half a million PRIZE!
