Hi again! At the Muse challenge this week we have Therese's beautiful card to inspire us and I love the inky background with the cute birds - so I used the same idea for my card. It's been a while since I played with my distress inks but they are always fun and the effects are so cool :)

Thanks for stopping in & I hope your weekend is a crafty one - Hugs xx

I've never seen that Penny Black stamp before and it is a perfect choice for the challenge. It really makes me think of very early spring when you just start seeing more birds.
