Free As A Bird with Delicate Lace - A Masculine Card

I set myself the task of making a masculine card using the Free As A Bird stamp set and came up with this card.  It's also inspired by "my little buddy" - see below for the explanation.

Using the Delicate Lace Die, I cut a section from the Basic Black card front.  I then used the same die to cut some Whisper White card and an offcut of Garden Lane Designer Series Paper and glued the pieces into position.

The bird is coloured with Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends alcohol markers and then fussy cut before adhering to the card front.

The greeting (from Good Morning Magnolia) is white heat embossed.

The base card is Gray Granite.

Just recently I rescued a Noisy Miner that was being bullied by a group of others and (having crashed into the windows a few times) ended up floating  face down in the pool, wings spread.  I waited for my husband to come home to help me take it to WIRES and tried placing it in a box (as they suggested) but, as it turned out, it would only settle while sitting on my hand.  It had a sleep, preened and chirped occasionally,  It was really very sweet.  My little buddy for the afternoon!
