Hey there Birdie!

This week the challenge over at the Heart 2 Heart blog is to create a shaped card-or a card that is not square or rectangle. I have been in a "bird" kinda of mood. I just finished up my sample project for this Sundays Ustream class and was inspired to keep going on the bird theme.
Below you can see how I created the bird shape. I use the Bird Basics stamp and enlarged the image to create the card. I then traced the shape onto the card leaving it connected at the head and tail.
