Birds of a Feather!

Good Evening!

A quick post before I finish packing my case for the trip to Blackpool tomorrow.  Poor hubby will be looking after himself for a few days.

I'm going with a friend whose birthday is on Saturday so this is the card I've made for her.  Drinks will be on me on Saturday night.

I did the background with distress oxide inks and over stamped with a freebie feather stamp then lifted a little colour off some feathers.  It looked a bit dull so I added some white gell pen and distressed the edges with my tool.

The bird and branches are punched from scraps of the background and I used Spellbinders dies which I bought recently at a table top sale.  The candy is handmade.

Enjoy your weekend.  I'm certainly looking forward to mine.
