Bird on a border

While looking for one of my embossing folders the other day I spotted this pretty fern folder and I have absolutely no recollection of where or when I got it. But I do know I've never used it before - and I can't think why. It gives such lovely crisp embossing and reminds me of the bracken at the edge of  forest. 

I've added a little die cut bird perching on it and looking up at the stamped sentiment. I cut the bird in cream and sponged on his plumage using a light touch with a finger dauber and several shades of brown ink. 

I am sharing this with
