Die cut birdie

Good morning, happy Saturday and happy Halloween for those who celebrate it! As you can see, my card today has nothing to do with Halloween except I did 'treat ' myself to the Bird Crazy stamps and dies on a recent trip to a craft shop! I have been trying to resist ....but failed miserably ....again!
Our challenge at Sweet Stampin' this week is to use dies and/or punches on your project (and of course some stamping somewhere!). I used loads of dies to make this, the robin is stamped onto kraft, a bit of colour added with my pencils and then die cut using the matching quick, so easy! His hat is stamped, coloured , glittered, cut out and stuck on . The sentiment is a Tim Holtz sizzix die. Ribbon and brad from stash.
We're hoping that you'll join us at   Sweet Stampin'  this week, there's a lovely prize on offer from our fab sponsor Live and Love Crafts and some wonderful inspiration to be enjoyed from my talented teamies! Just click here to take a look!
Thanks for visiting, enjoy the weekend!
