Iron Sharpeneth Iron

The first time I flipped through my Basic Grey Eva paper pad, this bird stood out to me. I was in love with the colors, and the image, but had no idea what to do with it. When I sat down to make a card with this Love Of A Friend set, I thought it might be a nice juxtaposition between the masculine nature of the "Iron" sentiment and the soft feminine curves of the bird. I added some rhinestones for a little bling, and am thrilled with the results. I hope you like it!
