Bluebird of happiness

Sure was fun to play with punches and dies to create a scene for this "thinking of you" card!


It started when I laid eyes on my old Stampin' Up! Extra Large Bird punch. It had not been used in a while. The bird needed some nature to surround it, so out came the SU Itty Bitty flower punch, and a Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch to create flowers. The Madera Corner die by Memory Box seemed a good fit for the corners of this card, to serve as the greenery. 


I used a tiny seed bead for the bird's eye.  Can you see it?

The sentiment is from Hero Arts' Everyday Sayings. The curlicues of the font go well with the flourishes on this card, I think.

Many blessings to you!
