birds in baby blue

Managed a second creation in one day.
~ Ü ~

Birds is this week's sub theme for this month's Make My Monday nature challenge.  Going a bit out of my comfort zone and using baby blue, with hints of pink & silver.


This card uses a bright blue cs base. The background is made up of flourish print paper, lace, ribbons and framed with silver peel offs. The main image has been adhered onto a paper doily, and foam-mounted. It is embellished with a silver painted flourish die cut, satin ribbon bow, a button tied with a spanking new silver twine, and pearl dots.
