A bright coloured bird on a branch

Feeling a lot better today, the cold's finally clearing and so it's back to work for me.

Thanks very much for the congratulations I've received. I'm sure that the good news yesterday helped me shake off the lurgy.

My other good news yesterday was the arrival of another SU order. In with it was the Bird on a Branch set that I'd bought myself while it's on offer this month (reduced from £14.95 to £11.96, please email me if you'd like to order). This set didn't jump out at me when I saw it in the Mini catalogue but I've spotted such gorgeous samples on other blogs, that the offer was more than enough to tempt me.

I kept it clean and simple for today's card.

Stamp sets: Bird on a Branch, Occasional Greetings (sentiment)
Cardstock: Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Melon Mambo, Basic Black
Punch: Eyelet Border
Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon: Melon Mambo

All very simple: stamping, matting and layering, with the bird cut out and popped up on a dimensional.

More two step stamping coming soon.
