Birds - MMM Week 30

Hello everyone, hope you're all having a good day.  It's still very windy with lashing rain here.  We can see right across the Pennines and it doesn't look good...more gales forecast for tonight.

Today I've made a card to enter this weeks challenge over at Make My Monday and the theme is birds.

Here's my contribution...
I printed papers from the Crafty Secrets CD, and for my tiny pearls on the border I used a white pearl maker pen.  I used several dies from Spellbinder Ironworks collection and linked them together to form a holder for my image label.  The bird stamp is by Tim Holtz.  I created the sun and sky using distress inks and a small circle mask for the sun. Ribbon is from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, and sentiment is by HOTP.

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy the rest of your day xx

So pretty Sasha, makes my card look very busy indeed!! Hope you don't get any damage from the wind, it's bad enough here in London but you are obviously more open than us!

I love a bird image Sasha and this one makes a gorgeous focal point framed like that. We've had the most dreadful gales here in Buckingham too - I was woken up at 5.30 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep for the noise outside! Vicky x
