Black & White.

What a lucky girl I am - yesterday my husband went out to do a bit of shopping and he came home bearing gifts. He had bought me a set of stamps from the Papermania range called 'Tweet'. Now I love birds and birdcages so I had to stamp a card straight away and this is the result

The whole thing is stamped with a Memento ink pad - Tuxedo Black - and I used the branch from my Bird on a Branch set. To finish it off I raised the sentiment on some 3D foam pads and added some black satin ribbon. Although you can't see them on the photo there are some crystal hearts on the birdcage.
I was really pleased with this card and it really didn't take that long to make and I also think it will be perfect for the challenge over on Craft Your Days Away Challenges - the theme being 'Black and White'
Thanks for looking - see you soon - Jacqueline xx.

  1. Now that's what I call a proper present! I love birds and birdcages too and this is lovely. I really like the border you've made as well. I think you should give this card to your thoughtful husband!

  2. What a great hubby, you're a lucky lady. And this design is beautiful. I love the monochrome look, it puts the focus on the great artwork.
