Tweety’th my name but I don’t know my age

Today’s card is for one of my staff and features another of Tim Holtz’s Bird Crazy birds.

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch over at Feeling Sketchy.  I swapped out the shape that looked like a postage stamp for a wonky square as you can’t help but think of wonky things when you look at those crazy birds, well, at least I can’t! 

My birds are coloured with Distress Markers, one day I will be happy with how I colour with those things, for now, well, I am improving so that’s a good thing.  I stamped the sentiment and embossed it, was going to go for a full blue and white theme but felt the background was a bit bland so added in the designer paper I’ve had in my stash for ages.

As I’ve used both a die cut and a bird on my card I am entering this in the current challenge over at Die Cuttin’ Diva’s.  I am loving these birds and plan to use them for every male card I need to make this year and I have to make plenty.  Over at Creative Corner they are looking for feathers and, as birds have feathers, I am also linking my card up there.
