Polly Want a Cracker

OK, this bird isn't even close to being a parrot...I mean where's the beak, the colorful feathers? Well it might not be a parrot but she might still want a cracker, no? :-) I am actually in need of a few cards this week...one for my SIL, who we're sending a very belated Christmas present to and a second for a friend whose husband is very ill. This card is for my friend, just to let her know that we're thinking and praying for them. Admittedly, the idea for this card came from my Stampin' Up! catalog (insert sheepish grin). The idea that I cased was the branch with the green bird, which I really loved. For some reason I've gotten my mind stuck on the idea that the silhouette birds, from Papertreyink, have to always be black. I loved that the green ink on the bird matched the cardstock. Gee, who would have guessed silhouettes look good in other colors too! ;-) The patterned paper, cardstock, and ribbon are all from Stampin' Up! and all of the images, including the sentiment, are from Papertreyink. If you click on the picture it will enlarge and you can see some of the details a bit better. Enjoy!
