hello there!
the song stuck in my head while i made this card today was 'daydream believer'...yeah. sorry if it's in your head now! it's a good one, though! :)
anyway, the challenge at little tangles is 'into the woods' and i love it! 

here's my card (with neat and tangled stamps of course!):
i used distress inks to watercolor the bird image (from the 'my heart sings' stamp set), which i then fussy cut out and popped up for dimension. then i added half of the thought bubble (from the 'just thinking of you' stamp set) to the top of the card because that bird just looks like she's lost in her thoughts! 

and the sentiment - come on! i think it's perfect! i personally don't use #'s in my posts, but a lot of people do, and i when i thought of this, it was a sort of a-ha moment! :) it's my favorite part of the card! 

so besides a little stitching added to the wood panel background, that's about it!
