Aviary Hello

  I needed some cards to send out to a few of my stamping ladies so I used the cool sketch over at The Paper Players to get my mojo going.  I was bound and determined to keep using the Howlstooth & Scarringbone DSP even though Halloween was over yesterday.

  The base is Marina Mist with a layer of Very Vanilla that was embossed with the  Perfect Polka Dots e.f.  Next I pulled in some of my Howlstooth & Scarringbone DSP edged with strips of Early Espresso.    I made the banner from Marina Mist cardstock and then embossed some lines using the Simply Scored.

  I stamped the cage and bird from Aviary and then cut them out with the Windows Framelit.  I added a little loop of Early Espresso stitched grosgrain.  Then I stamped a quick "hello" from the Pennant Parade set and punch it out with the jewelry tag punch.  I held the tag and ribbon loop in place with a Marina Mist brad.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
