A Bird of a Different Color.......

     Happy Monday!  Hubby is feeling a bit better, and I wanted to thank all my blogging friends for the well wishes.  I am trying to get back in a blogging routine here, so I just had to push myself to post.

 
     Today's card is made with a digital sentiment and image, with papers and embellishments from my messy desk.

The sentiment is from TLC Creations.
The sweet bird is from A Day for Daisies
Unsure of the sparkly background paper
The flowered strip is from K&Co.
I used Prima flowers, Champagne Stickles
My sentiment is cut with a Fancy Tags 3 die from SB, and I altered the openwork end.
I created a crown with the negative from the tag, and added some glitz. I also cut the birds little butterfly antennae to fit the crown.

     I would like to enter this at Pixies Snippets Playground.  I have a friend who plays here all the time, so I jumped on the band wagon.

     Hope you have a wonderful day!

What a delightful card, and I loved reading how you altered the S/B tag die to fit as you did. Creative thinking, worked great! Made a terrific crown for the little pink bird. Just joined as your newest follower, and invite you to visit when you have time. Nice to see you at Pixie's Playground. Look forward to seeing you there again soon. TFS & Hugs

Hi Mary Anne, a huge welcome to the Playground! And what a lovely card you brought too. The little bird is adorable and very clever to use the die punch negative for his crown. Mrs A plays with us and I can see that she's likely to let you share turns on the swings in the Playground 'cos she too sees potential in leftover scraps from die cutting or punching.

Sorry I'm a bit late commenting,been playing catchup here. Hope to see you again!!

Hugs, Di xx

Hi Mary Anne, big big welcome to the playground. I have made a space on the swings for you. I have a bag of sweeties and we can sit and compare snippets together. (bit like the old bead swapping of olden days). hugs Mrs A.
