Sad Birdie

**This is my second post for today.  For my CAS-ual Fridays post please scroll down or click here.***


Hello there!  I'm back again with some more black and blue goodness for you.  This time I'm playing along with Dynamic Duos where we are to use Basic Black and Tempting Turquoise.  There is a dessert option to use clouds but I'm trying to cut back on desserts these days so I skipped them, tempting as they were!  :)  This is one of the first Papertrey Ink sets I ever got and I still love that little bird although I always thought he looked a bit sad.  Perfect for a Miss You card!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Bird & branch from Little Bitty Bird) Papertrey Ink, (Sentiment from Simple Salutations) Market Street Stamps
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Nesties Standard Circles Large) Spellbinders, (Double-Ended Banner) Papertrey Ink
Gems:  Reflections
Washi Tape:  Crafty Basics

That little birdie is fabulous and I love the sweet little banners.

I'd say if you going to have dessert, it should NOT be clouds, Jen. Love this little guy, who doesn't really look sad to me, but this card is dear, my dear.

You know, I never thought of that bird as sad, until today. He is perfectly framed within that circle, and he does make a fabulous missing you card.

Aw! That birdie does look sad! And the b&w background makes him look even sadder - which is indeed totally perfect for a miss you card :)

He does look sad and pensive, doesn't he? Perfect paired with the sentiment.
