Bird Crazy - Why Yes I am!

Hello Blog Friends - it has been days since I have been able to post - it is not for lack of creating I can assure you!! I have been working hard on magazine commissions for next year and Design work with fabulous new products - you will get to see them all in due time! But in the meantime....

....I have been caught up in the Bird Crazy craze - but seriously - what is not to love - everything about these adorable Birds appeals to be!!  I have created quite a few cards using them - just for fun and am sharing the first one today - very simple but I just had to let the bird be the star! 

 I have coloured this image using Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko Radiant Neon Inks and a sponge dauber - one of my favourite ways to colour.  The card base has been cut using Labels Forty Spellbinders® Nestabilities and the Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.

The sentiment inside the balloon is from Penny Black Inc. and my card is held together by  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
