I made a few of these enamelled birds last night and made them up into cards this morning. Four of the Memorybox birds were stacked together for support and then the shape was embossed multiple times with a yellow embossing powder and cleat UTEE and If you look really carefully you can see the highlights of gold which were added during the process. I'm thinking of adding some tiny eggs to that branch (Spellbinders Cherry Blossoms) and making some of the cards into Easter cards. The Memorybox Small Circle Burst makes a simple but effective backdrop for the bird.
The theme at Make My Monday Challenge #40 is Birds so I'll be entering this card there.
Cuttlebug Mania has the theme It's a Zoo Out There so I'll be entering there as well.
Addicted to Stamps Challenge #231 has an Anything Goes theme this week (yippee)
and Seize the Birthday also has an Anything Goes Birthday theme this week, so I'll be entering there too.
I forgot to mention the little bird on the envelope (which is also on the inside of the card). I created my own stamp by die cutting a bird from funky foam. With a little water, it will stick to an acrylic block and you can stamp a matching image. A neat trick isn't it!!!
Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to stop by - especially if you leave some feedback. I hope you're enjoying some sunshine in your part of the world,
