Birds of a feather…


Hello Crafting friends,

I am hosting today over at Crafty Card gallery.

 The challenge was to use an item you would find in or around your home

and it must be featured on your card.

 It could be a stamp of a tree a cutout of a window or door, a key, etc….

 I chose a bird!

 We are so very fortunate to have a pond directly across the street from our home

and have many a species of birds who grace us with their presence!

 Not to leave out the hundreds of ducks that leave a little bit of themselves behind as well

as a reminder that they were there…. We will save them for another card….lol

             Here is what I came up with!


I thought it might be fun to add some texture to my bird by running him through a SU embossing folder.  

Also, his wing is made from a butterfly punch cut in half.

I am also linking this card up to a couple of challenges:
