Clear Dollar Stamps Praying Bird

I'm really happy with the way my card turned out today!  
The yellow, black and white color combination is nice and bright and works well with this 2007 sketch  layout #111 from Splitcoast Stampers.

The Clearly Inspired #28 challenge starts today at Clearly iStamp, that was the reason for my card and I thought it would be a nice one to tuck into my Operation Write Home box.  My cute bird & sentiment is a digital stamp set by Clear Dollar Stamps called Praying Bird.  To enter and read all about the Clearly Inspired challenge please click here.  I hope you'll be inspired and join us!

You do such a great job with the embossing folders. I always have trouble and don't think it looks right once I do it! and love love how the black dots are different sizes.
