It was nice to pull out a bird stamp I haven't used in a long time. I loosely masked it after colouring and stamped the background stamp over it with smokey grey, then sponged stormy sky around the edges. Matted it onto some dark grey. It's a surprisingly large image, so I had to go for the square base. I embossed the background layer with SU's quilt top ef, and wrapped some washi tape around the edge. Added the little sentiments, and made three paper buttons with the various card I had used for matting and layering.

Well, I just learned something. I'm familiar with the tufted titmouse (one of my favorites to watch), so I wondered if crested titmouse was just the European phrase for it. Turns out there is a black-crested titmouse and a tufted titmouse. (The crested has black on the crest, the tufted's crest is all gray).
Ornithology lesson aside, this is a wonderful card. The bird image is lovely and I like the gentle humor of the tweet and chirp with the music background. The washi works perfectly, too.
This is a fabulous card, Sabrina, and I learned an ornithology lesson from you and Sandy/stampingwriter! This card became extra special with the little details you added - the washi tape, the little sentiments, and the paper buttons (those are my favorite)!

Well nuts - I didn't want to like this card because I was so taken with the chatty sweating chicks but "darn!" this one is super too! Orange is typically not a color I gravitate to, but I really like this subdued orange with the gray / black accents - well and of course the music!

Sabrina, this is a lovely bird image! You have designed the card wonderfully with the embossed bg and dp! Re my card - I didn’t like the photo I took last night so deleted card. Finally had chance to take another photo and upload this afternoon! Still not happy with photo - the card is not as bright as it appears!!
