What a lovely Sunny Friday

Glorious day ad after a couple of very busy work days it was so nice to get into the craft room for a little hobby time.

The Clarity Stamps Blue Tit was stamped and coloured a while ago but things never got any further.   Today Fussy Cutting them kinda led to this.

Larger card base dusted with yellow, pink and blue DI.  Some DCWV papers a TH bird cage die.  Not sure who made the sentiment die but know that the sentiment came from a Magazine set I think.  The tassel came from a strand of gems in my Jewellery making stash.

The smaller card.  Was inspired by a sketch and the dichotomy of CAS and Layered, so white base card, white mulberry paper, vellum that has been embossed with a folder and then more white card.  The sentiment "Time goes by so fast Enjoy Every Moment" is an old Creative Expression.

As a pair they are my entry to Twofers Birds challenge #40.
