Thinking of You Birdy!

I just LOVE this stamp set. It's "Bird on a Branch" by Stampin' Up! I am also LOVING the "Bella Birds" decorative papers too!!!

I was perusing though my album of SplitCoastStampers Sketches to find a layout I wanted to use for this card. I was actually working on two different cards and somehow I got the backgrounds mixed up that I was going to use. But it worked out just fine. I was able to use the one background with the three pieces in it and I added my own layout on top of that. That was fun but if I were to sit down and try to figure out something like that I just know I'd be sitting there for a VERY long time!!! LOL

I added 3 pretty blue/silver dew drops on the upper left corner. It just looked like it needed something up there and those did the trick!!! They're such fun to use on cards. And this color went SO well with the decorative paper and card stock, didn't it? Well, I hope you can see the colors I see. I know once the photo goes on the internet the colors will look a little different than they do in real life! But it should be close in the photo!

The words were done on the computer because I needed a "Thinking of You" to fit in a 1-1/4" circle. I am not very fond of the color of the words. I used the color code for Bordering Blue and it has a bit too much pink in it because to me it has a little look of purple. But if you don't look too close no one will know. Well, now everyone will know because I posted it on here!!! LOL

Now to get it out in the mail!! This card is for a friend of mine. Just to let her know that I'm thinking about her.

Thank you SO much for visiting today and have a grand day!
