Because I Care



I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest recently to pull my SU! bird punch out again and have a play with it. I had a few snippets of blue cardstock on my table, so I punched the bird along with 2 squares to add underneath the corners of the image panel. The designer paper is Bazzill Basics and I punched the bird's wing from that paper and I like how everything looks coordinated. I added a black gemstone for the eye, along with a retired SU! sentiment, and called this one done.
I'm sharing this with the Double D Blue and White challenge which has the following inspirational photo:


May the bluebird of happiness visit you soon! Have a fabulous day :)

This is the sweetest bird and it makes an absolutely adorable simple card. Love how the wing matches the background paper. Really brings it all together. Now you've got me thinking about some of my bird dies. I'm so glad you played along with our Blue and White challenge at Double D!
