For the Birds Friday Mashup

This week, The Friday Mashup has a challenge to use Crumb Cake, or use gingham, or mash-it-up and do both... and that is just what I did... twice!

There is something about red gingham that just makes me love and it makes me smile!  Pair that with Crumb Cake and I've go "perma-grin."

I have kept this card CAS.  I used the ice-skating bird from For the Birds.  I used my marker to ink the bird in black, but the sentiment in red.  Then I used my same marker to color in the bird.  The scarf and hat are stripped red and Crumb Cake.  
I played around with the ribbon on this one.  I like the thickness of the red ribbon.  But that's not gingham.  I wanted to add some gingham ties, but it just wasn't working out.  Instead, I just added a gingham bow.  I am much happier with the gingham ribbon.  You can't argue, it is CAS.  But I do love it!
Thanks for looking!

Love the CAS feel of your card- the white space allows the bird and the bow to stand out wonderfully. Thanks for sharing with the Friday Mashup this week!
