Free as a Bird

Good evening and welcome to the Inkspired Blog Hop. Maybe you have come from Maree. I can't wait to see what she has created for tonight.


Here is our sketch for tonight:


And here is my card:



There is a bit of a story behind this card. I was sick and had to have a week off work. For those who don't know I am a primary school teacher. The teacher who is my neighbour is TERRIFIED of birds, and there was a bird in my classroom while I was away. So my friend had to remove the bird from the classroom. She told me about it after and said that she deserved an award for bravery, so I made her a card. We had a good laugh about it when I gave it to her.

Inks: Tuxedo Black Memento
Cardstock: Pool Party, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Bird Ballad
Stamp: Free as a Bird
Die: Layering Circles
Ribbon: Metallic Silver Edge Ribbon (coloured with Petal Pink Blend)
Stampin' Blend: Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie (dark only)

Next on the hop is Kozue. Make sure you hop around to see all of the creations for tonight!
