Birdie Trio

I cut this out of white cardstock and colored with my markers, the background paper is a bit busy so I placed it onto a die cut to frame it.  Can you believe this paper was from a paper pack I bought when I first started cardmaking over 12 years ago, back then I didn't save any names of the paper I was buying, didn't have a blog or anything yet :)



The wing portion of the die can be removed and that is what I did but then I didn't like the white showing through so I used one of my sparkle pens to add a little color.

Tutti Design -- Birdie Trio die, colored w/markers
Spellbinders - Classic scalloped oval lg. die
My Favorite things - Label maker sentiment stamp
Spectrum Noir sparkle pens- Harvest moon (for wing)
Diamond Dazzlers

We are enjoying some warm temps this weekend, the last they say, next week we get into the winter temperatures!

Hope you enjoy a lovely weekend,
Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by,

Connie

Your card is very pretty. We too have been experiencing warmer than normal weather but the more real winter weather is heading our way. I guess we have to enjoy the nice temp's now while we can.

I love anything with birds! If I saw this Tutti die before I don't remember it and I think that's because you made it so extra pretty with your coloring. I really like the paper you used. Some things never lose their appeal. I probably would have been hoarding this paper.

What a beautiful card! You put so much work into each detail. I have a lot of paper from when I first started stamping/scrapbooking many many years ago too! We got some snow this week, and we are enjoying typical winter weather here now :) Have a blessed weekend!
