Birds of a Feather

I thought I'd take a rest from Christmas cards and join in some non- Christmas (or Halloween!) challenges.

The theme for this card was set by Time Out  -  'birds of a feather flock together' . I didn't have to think too long before I remembered this stamp but it took me ages to find it! (Note to self: must downsize craft stash!).

The spots on the birds made me remember I'd seen a 'dots' challenge at Love to Scrap.  I carried the theme through with a spotty embossing folder and a spotty label stamp (Stampin Up) , which I punched out and stamped a sentiment in (Sarah Hurley).

You may notice I haven't credited the brand of the birds stamp. That's because the packaging has long gone. Which brings me to the 'Shop in Your Craft Room ' challenge at Simply Create Too . All the stuff I've mentioned is old stuff, as is the vellum I stamped the birds on, which has been gathering dust for a while now.

  4. That's one beautiful stamp. I'm hooked on vellum, there's so many ways to use it, and I like the torn edges effect here...
