Back to Birds?

Yup, I was on another bird kick! At the beginning of the month, I ventured out with my friend, Ali, to one of our fav stamp stores, Absolutely Everything. I picked up a bunch of new Memory Box stamps....do I love their stuff! Simple yet strong images! Anyway....I came up with this card with the help of one of my Ma Vinci Reliquary alphabets.

Huddled Bird, Petite Dove and Perched Bird (Memory Box); B, i, r, D from Playful Heart Alphabet (Ma Vinci's Reliquary)
Cardstock: Burgundy (Paper Store); Very Vanilla (Stampin Up)
Ink: Antique Linen (Distress Ink); Chianti (Colorbox)
Embellishments: gorgeous ribbon that's origins are sadly unknown

The second card showcases a beautiful stamp from Magenta. I started with some great patterned paper and using that as a springboard came up with the combination of River Rock and Really Rust for the main pieces of the card. I needed some heavy duty contrast so I added Handsome Hunter to the mix. I got these cute swirl paper clips AGES ago so I decided to use them to create a little interest.

Grouse Trio
Three Birds (Magenta)
Cardstock: Really Rust, River Rock, and Handsome Hunter (Stampin Up)
Paper: Urban Window Collection - On the Dot Wheat (We R Memory Keepers)
Ink: Timber Brown (StazOn)
Chalk: Really Rust (Stampin Up) - in background of image to allow birds to stand out. Did you think I would do something the normal way? Not!
Embellishment: cool gold swirl paper clip

Tomorrow - new Autumn cards!
