Black, white and teal ...

I'm back to work later this week ... I'm not sure where the last six weeks have gone but they have whizzed by!  I've done so much but at the same time seem to have done very little ... I've spent a lot of time travelling around the UK leaving me very little time for crafting and my blog.  My blog seems to be very quiet ... very few visitors and very few comments but I guess if I'm not blogging regularly there is no new reason to visit!  I'm hoping to rectify this by finding time to blog more often!

So here we go ... my second post for September and a new card to share:

I created the background using multiple background and sentiment stamps.  Stamped and die cut the bird before adhering it to the card using foam tape for added dimension.  I added the sentiment in black to make it pop from the background.

I used:
STAMPlorations: For the Birds Stamp and matching die set
                            Trendy Birds
Simon Says Stamp: Happy 3x4 stamp set
Versfine Onyx Black
Distress Ink: Peacock Feathers

I'm entering the following challenges:
