A Little Birdie

{for my Shining the Light post scroll down or click here}

Hello... I'm back with my card for this week's CASology challenge and guess what??? It features a bird!!   The cue word this week at CASology is sky.   So many things can be found in the sky.... birds, planes, etc.   All the information can be found here.  Let your imagination fly!!!




I have had this Memory Box die Perched Reed Bird for a few weeks now and had been looking for a project to use it on.   This week's CASology challenge was the perfect chance.   I went with a kinda bold autumnal color combo for my card... dark yellow and dark red.  I punched a partial circle out of the dark yellow card stock piece.  The bird was die cut from dark red cardstock and then adhered to the dark yellow slightly overlapping into the open space.  Then I stamped the sentiment (from a Taylored Expressions set Make it Amazing).  The entire piece was then adhered to the card base.  I used a tiny black rhinestone for the bird's eye.  I love the graphic look to the card and it also highlights the fact that "white space" doesn't need to actually be white, lol!

Thanks for stopping by....make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team:  Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth and this week's guest designer, Meghan! Can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI & Stampin Up!; Ink:  Memento; Die:  Memory Box; Punch:  Stampin Up!

Love it! I might have thought to perch the bird on a sentiment, but it wouldn't have occurred to me to add the circle and it is a fantastic look!!!
