Funky Friday # 31

Another week has passed and this morning, by 7.30am I had managed to hoof my husband off the computer and had gone in search of this weeks challenge. Then to my horror there was no challenge posted! What was I to do? Well, by 10 o'clock I had had enough of being patient and phoned Abi. One hour later I was starting my card :)

This weeks colours were Basic Grey, Whisper White, Basic Black and either Elegant Eggplant or Bravo Burgundy. As I am short of Eggplant I went for the latter.

I used Bravo Burgundy as my base card and topped it with Whisper white with scalloped edges. I repeated the vine stamp from the Fresh Cuts set across the front (I only inked it up once so it would pale as it went across).

I used my coluzzle to make the outer circle of the topper and punched around it with my corner rounder, then I used black beads to embellish. The bird stamp is from the Penny Black Garden Friends set and I coloured him in with grey and more Bravo Burgundy. I finished off with two small strips of Basic Gray and the "for you", again from the Fresh Cuts set.

I adore this stamp because I think it is cute the way the bird (or Dave as I have named him!) is looking up at the greeting.

Have a nice challenge.
