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
