Autumn Bird

 I just had to use another of my bird dies, this time for a masculine card. I added a debossed piece of cardstock, inking over it, some strips of papers and some leaves from a garland I found at the dollar store last year and forgot to use.

  • Tim Holtz - Feathered Friends die and Clipping Sticker book for sentiment
  • Sizzix embossing folder
  • 49 and Market - In the leaves scraps and another unknown strip
  • Dollar Tree - leaf garland

I would like to share my card today with the following challenges:

Let's Squash it Challenge - Cuz 2 out of 3 ain't bad
Can you handle the pressure - Anything goes with a twist of leaves
Double D Challenge Things that fall, check out their inspiration piece, I went with the top left corner of the falling leaves

Thanks so much for stopping by and still praying for all those impacted by the hurricane in Florida and now going up the coast.

What an adorable card. You are inspiring me to make cards again. I hope all of my old ink pad haven't dried up.
Have a marvelous day!
