People look at you differently if you wear a bow tie…

I have a very dapper bird, one of Tim Holtz’s Bird Crazy stamps, on my card today, which I’ve dressed up with some items from Tim’s Crazy Things.

 To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch at Creaine.  Instead of paper layers I’ve done the elements in stencils going with a chicken wire theme.  I’ve got a bit of thing going at the moment with teaming Tim’s birds and chicken wire.  The final element I used a sentiment stamp from Stampin’ Up to create just to break up the background a bit.  The challenge at Creaine also required a hat so I gave my bird some character with a hat, flower and bow tie.

This card is going out to a male colleague hence the no fuss approach and Tim’s bird image – they are my go to for male cards this year.  Over at Crafty Gal’s Corner they are looking for male themed projects so am linking my card up there.  The current theme at Craft Rocket is feathers and/or fur so am flying in with my little feathered friend to enter their challenge.
