I know they're hot right now, but I really didn't think birds were my "thing," until I started seeing more and more cards using Stampin' Up's "A Birdie Told Me" set. Now I, too, am hooked. I caved and bought the set. (It fits with my current "no flowers" mode, too, which, by the way, will SURELY end soon.)
Today's card isn't really my style, but it's good to break out of your box here and there ... if only to remind you why you have a nice, comfy box to begin with, lol!
It doesn't show so well in the photo, but I went over the bird with my clear Spica glitter marker. The sewing was done with my machine. I just went around twice in a not-so-linear fashion (obviously). The rest is pretty straightfoward.
