Tweet! Tweet!

 
Hello!  It's What can My Mind Design Monday on the My Cricut Craft Room Blog today.  Our theme is something that flies.  I chose to use a cute little birdie from Nifty Fifties.   I made this card for a 7 year old birthday party my daughter went to.  I got lucky because the d├ęcor theme of the party was all about peace signs!  Cool, huh?!! or should I say groovy??---LOL!! 



A little tip I picked up:  don't throw away those left overs from your pop dots.  Cut them down and use them on bigger things you want to pop up/add dimension to :-)

Recipe:
4" square card base in black
The Paper Studio - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun stack- all patterned papers

Nifty Fifties Cricut cart - bird @ 3 3/4"

Pop dots, Impression Obsession stamp set Sentiments I, corner rounder.
