I thought I would do a CAS card for the final day of the Blog Hop this month.  I have come to love the way masking on a CAS card looks.  I stamped the birdbath, masked it -- and then masked the top and bottom of the card using Eclipse Tape before sponging on the green stripe.


I don't have a Twitter account -- no tweeting for me!  But I just had to use that sentiment on this "bird-day" card.

I've wanted to try a vertical criss-cross card for a while and never got around to doing it.  The images in today's set, Tweet That, gave me the perfect opportunity.  Here's the front of the card:


And here's the insert with the gift card -- a Lowe's gift card would be perfect for a new home:
