Birds and Books

Hello All, 

For today I will be playing along with City Crafter Challenge, Time Out Challenges and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Here is my card for today, enjoy!
I know, I know, I followed the inspiration photo from CCC almost to a tee, but I thought it was so cute and thought it would make a good card.
Thoughts?
The stack of books is from Stamplorations. The original image shows only three books with a coffee cup on top (see below). I decided to delete the cup, add a stack of books, and then finally add the bird.

The bow on up of the books is a separate element from the vertical twine holding the books 'together'. The tag is was placed under the bow and glued in place. 
Challenges Entered:
City Crafter Challenge: Week 399- Book Smart
Simon Says Stamp: Monday Challenge- Grunge it Up
Time Out Challenges: #103- Hobbies (I chose reading)



Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.
