Midnight Madness Challenge #62

It has been a while since I have shared a card; today I will be sharing the card I am entering in MMSC62. First here is the sketch:
You know Priscilla always has two sketches, one that's fancier with more embellies and layers; and one with less layers and etc. I chose to play with the simpler one this week.
 The bird stamp is from Delicious Doodles, this is one of the freebies given at CDAC. If you haven't made a visit yet to check it out you are missing some amazing talent from all the companies that have groups there.
I used a mailer received from Office Max to get the yellow leaves for trim, I also scanned it in so I could use the leaves with the bird image. I found some black paper that was had an almost crepe paper texture and used the Cuttlebug embossing folder with Versamark and then clear embossing powder to get the shiny look for the background paper. Since I didn't have any of the fancy shaped flouish beads I colored some pearls with a black Sharpie and made a small design myself. It's not exactly the same (LOL) but hey, you do what you have to do! *smile*

When you get over to CDAC look me up, I would love to have you stop by! Let me know what you think of the "line of birds"!

paper: Club Scrap, Office Max mailer
