Happy Birdie for the Paper Craft Crew

Welcome to another lovely Wednesday! Today started out chilly and crisp with beautiful sunshine but this afternoon dark clouds are steadily moving in and there is a definite change in the air. But we managed to have a lovely walk with one of our wonderful friends and her two dogs so Sally is a happy girl enjoying a dream filled snooze after smooching and walking the streets with her friends  :-) She has her Post Operative X-rays later this week so hopefully we will get the "All clear " from the surgeon to return to the Park which we are all looking forward to doing.
And so it is time for another sketch from the Paper Craft Crew! I do hope you have a moment to check out the great cards from all the Design Team Members this week. Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

For my card I turned to the fun Hostess set called "Hello Love." I do love the "a little birdie told me" saying! I coloured the "Birdies" with my Blendabilities markers after first stamping in the Momento tuxedo black ink and cut one out to layer too :-) And I used a retired set from Saleabration in January called "Banner Blast" to stamp the banners.

And for something a little different texturally, I used the Starburst Framelit Dies to cut out firstly the Silver Glimmer paper peeping from behind the square panel, and the little Crushed Curry one on top…which once stamped was then topped with some Crystal Effects to look like a shiny button :-)
