MMM week 46 Birds or Animals

I feel a bit like the White Rabbit this week, late for everything! I've missed three birthdays this week and had to get some cards done quickly:) I've put it down to Granny Amnesia!!!
 Anyway more importantly back to this week's MMM challenge. The continuing theme is Men and Boys but this week we are asked to include Animals or Birds. I think we all struggle with cards for men and I'm not sure I have succeeded but I like it:)

The EF is a Tim Holtz one, distressed with Pumice Stone DI and the birds highlighted with Marina Mist.
The bird stamp is SU Little Vermilion stamped in Chocolate Chip and coloured with DI's and a water brush. The leaves are a Darice EF that I fussy cut and coloured with Versamagic Spanish Olive and the birds were popped up with silicone glue.
The sentiment is an old SeeDee one.

Hope you like it, thanks for taking the time to visit me:)

Hope you catch up with yourself soon - horrible being all behind!! Brilliant male card and I might need that embossing folder which looks really useful for this type of card.

Fabulous card, Val. I love your embossed and distressed background. That young vermillion stamp is one of my favourite stamps, and you have coloured him beautifully.
Hope you can soon catch up with everything. I've been catching up, too xx
