Samantha Walker Creative team hop!

Welcome to our Samantha Walker Creative Team Monthly Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Samantha's blog, that is where all the  fun starts, and you don't want to miss out!







 For my card today, I decided to play along with the Tuesday Trigger- I immediately thought of this bird from the Cuckoo Clock die set!

I die cut and embossed the bird from the S5-075 Spellbinders Cuckoo Clock set shown below.  The birds are popped up with 3D Foam squares onto a grey background matted with blue on white.
I decided on following the trigger as shown ans sticking with the same color scheme.  I love how it tuned out- I'm not usually one for sentiment-less cards, but I may try it more often!

And...it just so happens that-
