A gift...

 A friend rescued a whole bag of rubber stamps from a local second hand store for me... how cool is that?!  This one was among them so I had to make a card for her!  Thank you Ann!
The camera does odd things with color - the DP is actually the same yellow green color as the roof on the bird house.  Isn't that weird?  You also can't see that it is dry embossed on the Cuttlebug with a swirl design.  The ribbon is purple and my favorite embellishment is the tall "Plant" at the base of the pole.  It was made with two very thin strips trimmed off the edge of the background paper.  The two strips were tied in a knot, the ends tapered and all four ends are glued down.
