A Little Bird Told Me....

Bird of Kindness

it's time for another challenge over at Charisma and this is my DT card, our theme this week is "Animal Magic" which has been set by Allison and it's all about animals, so pop over for a look.

I've used the new gorgeous Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch from Stampin' Up! it's in the new mini which comes out today - if you'd like a copy just send me an email and I'll send one out to you.

I've stamped on the bird (but not the wing) using another new Mini product, a beautiful stamp set called Vintage Vogue. When we saw this was being released a lot of the SU Demos started hyperventilating, but I wasn't sure it was a set for me, then I saw some of the fantastic, beautiful creations made using this set and completely changed my mind, I can see it becoming a firm favourite. I've also used the small flower stamp and one of the sentiments from the same set. I don't own this Bird Punch (yet) I had a cheeky punch with it at our SU Training Day when it was passed around for us to look at, so my bird is all in one colour but you can punch the wing and the branch out in different coloured cardstock if you like, I coloured my branch in using SU! markers.

The papers are SU! Sweet Always, the punch is one I bought at the NEC last week, ribbon & bling from my stash as is the embossing folder

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
