Happy Thursday! I apologize for my post being late today. I have just finished working 5 12-hour days in a row and I was too exhausted to make my card last night, and not awake enough to make a quick one this morning. I had trouble getting everything to come together just like I wanted BUT I finally got it. I had an idea in my head of how this card should be and I wasn't going to settle for anything less. I hope you like it.
I used the newly-released set from AI called A Bird's Song. I just love these birds. It is a great set with a lot of potential. I also used this week's Sketch Challenge from SCS (#253). I just thought it was a neat layout and perfect to showcase one of this set's images.
I chose the Cardinal because they are such beautiful birds, and I saw one yesterday driving while down my street. Actually, it was IN the street but luckily it flew to safety. Phew!
I used a lot of different items on this card to get it how I wanted. (see list below) I hope you like it- despite the length of time it took to create, I truly enjoyed creating it. Thanks for stopping by!
