Song Bird

Hello and thank you for your visit.

The card today was made using my latest purchase, Song Bird by Sizzix.

I stuck scraps of paper, from a Craftworks Cards pad,  to scraps of white card.  They were diecut  and then stuck onto a piece of old book page.

I cut off the top leafy piece of the die.

The sentiment is an old and well loved Hobby Craft stamp.

After taking this photo I did a couple of scribble lines around the edge with a black fine liner as I thought it needed something else!

As I've only used scraps I'm going over to join in at Pixies Snippets Workshop Weeks 299 & 300

This is a wonderful snippets make Barb and love the kraft card which goes perfectly with that pretty bird on the branch, and a great idea to use up bits of paper to die cut with. x

Thanks for visiting, no need to apologise about being late catching up with everyone Barb, some days it's a mammoth task to visit us all, I never manage it I'm afraid.
This is a pretty way of using these dies, love the torn print paper too, makes the perfect background.

Fabulous! What an awesome card. So many dies... so little money. This one looks like a real keeper though. I need a sugar daddy, or several, to keep me in style.
