Batik Birds

When I first saw this Memory Box stamp, I thought it had lots of potential.  I love stamps that can be used with a variety of sentiments, and this one is so versatile.  I have used it for wedding, anniversary, thinking of you, and friendship cards.  I'm sure it will get lots of use as Valentine's Day gets closer.  I inked up the stamp with my Stampin' Up Classic Stampin' Spots and tried to give the illusion of a horizon line and sky background.  The Stampin' Spots worked really well for this, since they are compact and easy to apply to small areas of the stamp.  I usually make cards with several layers, but felt this worked as a clean and simple  design.

I thought this card would be perfect for the challenge at The Shabby Tea Room this week.
