Magenta Bird

This is a card I made using one of the newer Magenta stamps that I fell in love with. Birds and swirls with a distressed look are very popular and I guess I am adding more fuel to the fire!

I wanted to keep it more of a mono-chromatic look and used some paper scraps I had that I think are from Wild Asparagus. The ink is Cranberry Crisp by Stampin' Up (an older "In Color"). I also used the ink to distress the edges to give it more dimension.

Amazingly enough I had a button that was very similar in color, so I cut off the shank and adhered it over the two ribbons. I think it is quite elegant looking!
