PDCC#57/CardPatterns Sketch #92 - Antique Ledger Bird

WHOO HOO - got a chance to play a little with my new toys!  It is overcast and rainy today so you can't see that the silver paper is shimmery and that the striped paper has glitter!
I used the colors from the current Play Date Cafe Challenge and the sketch from Card Patterns.
Here are some of the tools used - I used the Marvy Uchida punch to cut out a cute little bird from the Making Memories Paper Reverie - Brun Antique Ledger Bird.  The SU! bird punch makes quick work of leaves for under the decorative embellishment.  The sentiment is one of my favorites from A Muse.
A Tim Holtz Texture Fade folder added texture and the gray/silver ribbon added some extra shimmer (you are going to have to trust me on the whole glimmer part!)
So yesterday on the way home our youngest boy HAD to stop and use the restroom - we ended up getting off at a kinda sketchy exit and stopping at a store that had bars in the windows and on the door.  Since he'd never been  in an "establishment" like that he looked around and said, "What's up - are they expecting a zombie attack or something?!" - that boy cracks me up. . .
