Swirly bird !

This is my card for the following challenges:

All of the stamps are from Paper Artsy and I've used Distress Inks, Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans and stamped the bird with Archival Sepia ink. The swirls on the side panel are stamped with Weathered Wood and the sentiment is stamped with Archival Sepia ink.

The lovely swirl is a Tim Holtz Sizzix die and the paper flowers are from my stash as is the metal corner embellishment. The background paper is My Minds Eye which I've grunged a little around the edges with Frayed Burlap DI.

We've had another glorious day today, it's so nice to have all of your doors and windows open. Even managed to catch a bit of tennis too ! Right I'm off to pack now as I'm going to see my friend for the weekend and my Goddaughter. I've not seen them in a while as they live a 3 hours drive away, so it will be great to catch up.

Thanks for looking
