"Bling Bling Birdie"

I really love Summer Sun. I think next to Celery, Summer Sun is my favorite color. It goes with practically everything. I have pared it up today with Ruby Red and Basic Black. I really like using black in my cards. It kind of makes the other colors pop. This birdie stamp I had wanted for months. I ended up getting it from my friend Shelly when I was in MN this summer. For this card, I colored the bird and added some bling on the tips of his tail. I mounted the image on a black oval that I dotted with the SU white gel pen. It matches the ribbon perfectly. For the background, I cuttle bugged two separate pieces and cut them in half and put one half of each on the card. I really like the look of the two different colors. The greeting is from the hostess set So Many Sayings punched out with the word window.
