Notebook Paper - Not Just for the Classroom

I don't think I have ever used this bird stamp.  It was a dollar purchase long ago.  It was finally time to give it a try.  I embossed with black EP.  When I saw the lines in the image, I wondered if I could incorporate some lined paper on the card.  So with a piece of notebook paper, I tried to capture some of the colors of the DP behind the bird.  The Ippity stamps of leaves and berries matched the DP and I think it all came together well.  I used the sketch at CPS.
