A Card with Rolled Paper

Have you tried rolled paper in your paper-crafting? I haven't! I was prompted by CREATE blog (see here ) to make a card with rolled paper! I was fascinated with the concept and did a little "research". Namely, type in the Google key word "rolled paper" and you'll see tons of inspiration! I was very much inspired by the images I saw!
And here is a card that I came up with!
just a note to say hello
As you can see, I used my new favorite Newsprint Bird stamp and Basic Grey paper for the touches of background. I rolled the kraft paper and built the twigs/branches for the rustic feel. The sentiment is from SRM Sticker's latest release. Add some gems, voila! I know I will come up with more ideas with rolled paper! So this will not be the last with them :)

Hi Virginia, love that rolled paper, that goes so perfectly with the birdie. You are soooo creative.

Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment on my blog congratulating me on the SRM Stickers DT.

Thanks for all the inspiration you've given me since I've discovered both SRM Stickers and your work!
