What amazes me with art cards, is how much detail some artists manage to pack onto them - awesome! I'm sure I would just make a mess LOL

the stamping on the strips is a great choice, wonderful card Lorraine!

Debra said...

Lovely card. It's almost as if the birds had torn the paper themselves.

You've been busy again, lots of lovely stuff added to your blog! I love this collage card, great collection of elements and the stamping looks fab on the painted papers!

Gorgeous, gorgeous card Lorraine! Michelle's blog/challenges are really interesting but I have yet to get off my lazy butt and do one LOL

I like the background stamp too...it looks like the real thing.

Wow--Lorraine! Lovely as usual! What a unique idea to use torn strips.

I love the saying about art on that card. I agree with it totally!

I'm sorry I haven't been by lately--grandkids--cleaning--decorating! Little time for creating I'm afraid. :o)
