Black Vellum Bird Call

This past weekend was the Heirloom Stamp show in Novi, and it was an expensive trip for me. My friend Renee and I went to the show on Sunday. Thinking of course that it wouldn't be as crowded, well it may not have been as crowded as Saturday but there were still a lot of people there. I managed to go over my budget and still leave wanting more.
Again so much for my pledge to use existing before buying new.
This card, however uses nothing new that I bought. A technicality, but still the truth. The only new thing on this card is the black vellum that was a freebie from Stamp On It (a store I go to whenever I'm in Grand Rapids) that I embossed with the CuttleBug Bird Call folder. I lied, the white matting was part of a pack of layering papers that I got at The Papercut booth, but that was one of the two things I intended to buy since I had run out of my layering papers. The white layer has a sheen to it that is really pretty. I took my opaque white pen and added an eye to the bird then highlighted some of the reeds. The ribbon was from my stash and it's done.
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
