A birdie thank you


What a glorious day!  Been inside most of it though doing an ironing mountain.  But I'm up to date and I've had a crafty play so off outside to enjoy the sunshine.  Hope you've been able to enjoy the sunshine where you are. 

I had two challenges in mind for my card.  
Dynamic Duos which for this week is Basic Black and Daffodil Delight.  
And CAS-ual Fridays which is to be clean and simple using punches. 

I used the large Blossom Punch on a previous post as a mat and thought it would be nice to do that again.  This time I've used Daffodil Delight.  The bird is made up from the Bird Builder Punch in Basic Black.  The wing is popped up on a Dimensional and I've added a Basic Rhinestone for his eye.  
The sentiment is from Curly Cute and is stamped in Basic Black.  I then used my new Scoring Tool to score around the edges, creating a frame.  I just love using this new tool.  It's so easy! 

Well I'm off back outside.  Must enjoy it whilst it's here.  Hope you've had a sunny/crafty day too.  x

Edit:  I'm also entering this into The Cheerful Stamp Pad which is asking for black, white and a dash of yellow.  Thanks Valerie for pointing this challenge out.

Love your CAS styling. I would so much rather be crafting than ironing. If it required ironing, it does not belong in my house! Thanks for playing with us at Dynamic Duos!
