Cletic Bluebird Love

I finally got to play with my Bluebird set from Artistic Outpost! I made this using the Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #29. I also pulled out the Very Vintage Labels No. 4 & Celtic Heritage stamp sets (both by WaltzingMouse Stamps).

I cut a strip of tissue paper and folded it to make a ruffled 'ribbon' which I then sewed on to my teal cardstock. I started sewing around the teal onto the brown cardstock, but the machine kinda broke down (ie I can't remember how to replace the empty bobbin on this ole' thing *lol*), so I did some faux-stitching with my white gel pen.

Thanks for looking!
