Less is More week 88-colour

This week's challenge over at LIM towers is a colour theme and Chrissie and Mandi are looking to see SILVER on our cards. It could be ink, paper, card, embossing powder, metal, a charm, whatever you can dream up as long as there's a touch of silver somewhere.
I had an idea in mind but it sadly came to a bad end! So this is what I came up with:

 How difficult is that to get a decent photo of something shiny? Not sure why there is a shadow on half of the birds face! This was the best I could get!

                                                                   Square 6 x 6 card base
 Strip of embossed card with the stars glittered
SU bird & branch cut out from Debbi Moore metal magic
Peel offs

Thank goodness the rain has stopped, the builders have had to dig almost to Australia to put in pilings as the neighbours extension doesn't have any foundations!!! The footings now resemble a swimming pool, so hopefully we won't get any more rain until the cement has gone in:) Anyway it's all progress and I'm looking forward to the completed extension.

Welcome to my latest follower, thank you for choosing my blog and thanks to you all for visiting, I love to read your comments:)

Your card looks beautiful, Val! Love your bird on a branch! The movement in your leaves looks lovely. Such a great effect with your embossing and sparkly stars, too xx
We're going away a week tomorrow, and I just found out that a pair of brand new trousers and two tops I bought for my hol's were sent to the charity shop on Friday. My lovely husband put out the wrong bag!!!

Val - this is stunning, and you have used one of my all-time favourite punches - I just love this versatile Bird Builder punch from Stampin' Up! The silver element looks fantastic to me, in fact the whole card is fantastic!

Hope you are having a happy weekend - hugs, Sylvia xxx

Such a fabulous card again Val, silver is so hard to photograph isn't it? I hope the work on the extension is progressing well now and that it doesn't rain for you too :) Viv xx
