Boss's Day Card

The Winter Bird 4x6 die from Cottage Cutz works well for any season bird. According to Hallmark, October 16th is Boss's Day but since that falls on a Sunday, I will present the card  to my  boss on Friday. I cut several birds and wings, glued them together so they would be thicker ( a technique I learned from The Scrapping Cottage design team member, Barry) then chalked the edges with a darker blue which made the bird really "pop" against the plaid paper.   Instead of using the ornament that came in this die, I used an orange 1 3/4" circle and a white  1 1/4" circle with computer generated sentiment.  I added the bow in the same color as the orange circle. Hope you will enjoy my card and thanks for stopping by.
