Papertrey Ink: Make It Monday #128

Now it’s time for Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday! (And also the CAS-ual Fridays Button Challenge. Woop Woop!)

I get so excited when Papertrey Ink has a new release! I saw the first sneak peeks when I was looking for the Make It Monday Video. August is always my favorite because of Halloween! I can’t wait! I haven’t been able to order for awhile so my wish list is about 10 miles long now, LOL!

Anyway, back to my card, haha πŸ™‚ This week the technique is to stamp a random background.

8I don’t know why, but I immediately thought of The Sweet Life stamp set and wanted a bird to go with it. I pulled out the little bird from Trendy Tree Tops, but it just wasn’t right. Then I remembered there was a bird in the Grunge Me set so I whipped it out and low and behold, the poor forgotten Hummingbird! (I use the other images like the paint splatters and the dots and stripes A LOT more often and sort of forget about that cute little birdy.) And to go with my bright feeling background I used my favorite sentiment in the We Go Together stamp set. πŸ™‚

Hope you like it!
