Vintage birds....



I was lucky enough to win some blog candy from Marianne and amongst the candy was this lovely stamp from Inkylicious called Vintage Birds.

I've made this card with a man in mind  so no added flowers or ribbons.  The backing paper is from Crate Paper which I have had for a long time...the reverse is a plain colour so was able to using it for layering.
Leaves are Memory Box Fresh Foiliage..bird cage and birds also from Memory Box...
I always have problems using silicone, hence the little bird sat on the leaf on the top left hand corner...dropped my cocktail stick with silicone on it...still at least he matches the two little birds in the cage..... just noticed that my photo is  wonkey as well...hey ho....
