Bermuda bird

Hi, thanks for looking at my blog, I hope you see something you like.

What a funny day it is again, one minute rain, the next brilliant sunshine. I think Autumn is taking a firm hold now thank goodness ( the hot weather is not good for my RA!). I have made the most of it and made 2 cards this afternoon.

The first is for Cas-ual Friday challenge where the card has to no larger than 4 x 4.

So I started with a white square card that was 4" x 4", rounded the corners, and layered it with a label nestabilitie in a green, and matted it with a white label on which I stamped the bird and flowers. I then stamped the bird onto white card and cut out the wing which was added to the card on 3D pads.
The finishing touches were the sentiment in green and gems on the flower and birds eye.

Here it is. I love this little bird and I like to add the big flourish as his tail instead of the long feather.

This is so different from the busy Steam Punk card yesterday, though each have their places in card makers hearts, this Clean and Simple is more my style.

I will also be entering this card in the Simply Less is More challenge where they are trying to get 1000 "Anything Goes" entries this week.

Recipe : Card = SU Whisper White and green from my stash
Stamps = Whimsical Wings and Verve
Inks = Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, and Certainly Celery
Tools = Big Shot and Labels nestabilities
Extras = 3D pads and gems from my stash

Thanks for looking today, and I would love to read what you think if you have time to leave a comment.

I'll show you the other card later.
