The Exception

Welcome to a new STAMPlorations Theme and Photo Prompt challenge!

The theme and photo prompt are:

Today for my STAMPlorations challenge inspiration make, I called on the Birds of Paradise again to make this almost CAS card. 
I stamped the birds multiple times using hand-cut masks to create the crowd of orangey birds, stamped the last bird in 2 parts, flexing the neck in a curve and filling in the rest of the line with a toothpick dipped into the inkpad.  I used 2 Kaleidacolor inkpads, one in Autumn Leaves and the other in Blue Breeze.
I added the sentiment which is made of 2 of the ones found on the Noteworthy 2 set, skipping the "enough" from the You are enough sentiment. The No 1 is from an old alphabet sheet.
I don't know whether the blue bird is hanging his head in shame at being different or if it's taking a bow at being no 1 but either way it makes me smile... I hope you like it too!

The STAMP girls are showing inspiration for all the challenges on the STAMPlorations blog so pop by and don't forget to link your make for a chance to win.
