Bird on a branch Part 2

Here is that cute bird again from Stampin up (and the flowers from the Boho blossoms punch). In their latest mini catalogue, there was a picture of a card that used this colour combination and it caught my eye. Normally I would have black and white with a splash of red but I thought it looked really good with bright yellow so I had to try it out myself. Using SU's Night and Day papers and Sunshine yellow card, I punched out all my shapes and added some Kaisercraft black beads for the bird's eye and centres of the flowers.

I love that houndstooth check pattern, so gorgeous and reminds me of the 50's and Doris Day! I used to have a pair of leggings in that pattern in the 90's (yes, when flares were all the fashion again, not leggings, ha ha I like to be retro), they were my favourite I wish I still had them.

The temp this morning is 7C and it is May!!! What has happened to Spring and the warmer weather? I heard that New York was in the 30's at the weekend and Canada is also hot. Meanwhile over here we are freezing. I would LOVE to emigrate.

On a more cheerful note:

Today, I will be happier than a bird with a french fry.

Love that color combo! Especially against the great houndstooth pattern! And that quote at the end makes me smile....and hungry for french fries!
