For the Birds

Yes, you all know that's how I feel about snow and winter in general.  :)  But that's not why I chose that title!  I chose it because there is an adorable little birdie on ice skates in the For the Birds stamp set!  Create with Connie and Mary  had the perfect color combination for my little guy and I paired it with the sketch from The Paper Players.
I thought this was a cute little sketch and the banner was a perfect spot for my little ice-skating birdie.

I used Silver Glimmer cardstock for the scallops and Silver Dazzling Details on parts of the birdie as well as the larger snowflakes. On the snowflakes I just put a few drops of the DD and then spread it around with my finger.

Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder
Ink: Black StazOn, Baja Breeze, Wisteria Wonder
