Bird brained

Don't we all have this happen from time to time? An idea gets stuck in your head and you have to get it out no matter what. Well, thus this card. I will not share with you how many times I tried to align those two "birds on a wire" images before I got it right. Finally it worked just to have my stamp ma jig betray me on the owl/branch image. AAaaaaarrrrrrggggghhhhhhh! Well I had to just keep stamping. (My sister would probably tell me that if I hadn't pointed it out no one would've noticed but oh well I need sympathy!)
Ah well, here it is in all it's glorious mis-execution ...
I do believe I covered all the A Muse bird stamps I own. The pink flamingo is totally next on my list. It probably would've been cute here. (Aside: Would that flamingo be cute or obnoxious on a moving announcement? A friend's asked me to make 30-40 for her but I don't think it'd be her style. Hmmm ... moving announcement suggestions welcome.)
Deets: All supplies by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted. Stamps: All images by A Muse; Paper: Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, So Saffron; Ink: Black Stazon, SU! Markers, rose red; Misc.: may arts polka dot organdy, cream grosgrain, white gel pen, white glaze pen and stardust gel pen by sakura, rectangle hand punch by fiskars, blender pen.
