Thinking of you

Hello again. Another post today. So, I did find my blog again-we'll see about tomorrow.
A former member of my Prayer Shawl Circle is going through a tough time, so wanted to make her a card for our group to sign and send to her. 
I will enter this in the Pal  Paper Arts 133 sketch challenge, and also at Repeat Impressions Designers Choice Challenge DCC411, to use a bird or birds as the focal image on your creation.

I was at Michel's on Friday and found this cute rhinestone bird sticker. Now, I am a frugal crafter (I don't know why-I have tonnnns of stuff)-I usually don't use a whole sticker on one card-I'll try to get as much milage as possible out of them But this is so stinkin' cute I just had to use the whole thing. I put it on a piece of DP from the MME Lost and Found Market Street 6x6 pad and cut around it for the bird. Isn't he cute? I Used other pieces of the MME pad for the rest of the card, and some Bazzil (green) and DCWV (pink) cardstock. I ran the pink cs through the CB with Cuttlebug Cindy Lou embossing folder and sanded it to bring out the embossing. I cut some of the green cs with SU sweetest stem embosslit and slightly inked the edges. for the flowers I stamped the little flowers from Verve Blessings stamp set, cut around them and layered 3, 2 and 1. I shaped them slightly with a stylus and foam mat. I added flowersoft to the centers fo the flowers and the single leaves from the stems that I put under the bird. I used a piece of embroidered ribbon from my sewing stash that I have had for years-I made my daughter a dress that I used this on when she was in early elementary school-she's now in her 30s and a mom herself!
Hope you enjoy!
