Birds of a Feather and Tagged again.....oh my.....

Blog Candy a few posts down......I'm drawing tonight for a Little Paper Shop "Just Bee-Cause" stamp set!! You will love it!!

Well, because of this nutty computer, I had a too much trouble getting onto the Papertrey Blog Hop last night but I will post my card anyway!

Transparencies were the order of the night, and I had just received my pack of transparencies from Cornish Heritage Farms so I was in!!

This did not start out as a 4 x 4 card, but it seems to be the only way to get the effect I wanted! So 4 x 4 it was!

I used Papertrey Ink's aquamist cardstock as my card base and glued a piece of 4 x 4 Everyday Blessings designer paper on top.

I cut a piece of 4 x 4 transparency and stamped it in black Staz-on with Birds of a Feather hummingbirds.

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Everyday Blessings stamp set.

After adhering the transparency to the front, I tied a bit of May Arts swiss dot ribbon around the edge to hide the little (kind of) transparent glue dots.

Very simple and pretty!

I wish I could have got on the blog hop, but I think I will still add my post to the forum! ugh - computers - can ya tell I am a little peeved???!!

My SBS2 sister, Becky has tagged me!! I think this is a new one to me so here it goes!!
