I just love the way this card turned out. I must admit that I tried several color combinations before coming up with this one. I have a friend who is a "snowbird" and I miss her a lot, so I'm sending her this card to let her know just that! I haven't used my "pop up petals" in ages and I'm happy with the way they added to the card with little effort on my part.

I have to say that I love the bird cage die. It adds such a touch of elegance to a card, no matter what the occasion. I went to a crop and as preparation, I stamped all of the birds from "Tweet Friends" and "Blissful Blooms" onto some nice smooth white cardstock and spent a lot of my time coloring images. It was a very relaxing evening and I was prepared to simply cut them out and add to my cards. I think I will do that will all of my stamps as I get them!

I puzzled about the corners for a few days and then decided on some fancy ones. I chose a blue and silver palate and I love the way it turned out. I used a silver gray cardstock to which I added a tone on tone background for the middle strip. Two shades of blue and a silver embossed sentiment finished the card. I chose the Verve sentiment "Everything is going to be OK". I have a few friends facing tough situations and I think this sentiment is most fitting.

I am loving the new paper pads. They make such a great starting point for any card. With the available color match printables, the cards are much easier to coordinate. I love these little birds and think the messages included in the set are grand. I'm needing several birthday cards next month so I thought I would get a head start.

I looked at this sketch for the whole week before it coming together. I needed a "Thank You" card for a friend, but nothing I had seemed appropriate. Some new goodies from MFT arrived and the "Because" set had just what I needed. I wrote a message on the inside. Have not heard yet how she liked it!
