Card for a Friend

Hello all! First of all, I want to let you know about an awesome new online community for paper crafters, Paper Craft Planet. Check it out!

This card is one I made for a friend who is going through a tough time. I knew I wanted to use this little bird from my Birds and Blooms Sizzlits and this is what I came up with. The flowers behind the bird are also from Birds and Blooms. Made of cardstock vellum, I used a sponge dauber to add Pacific Point for color. The background has square accents punched from metallic gold cardstock as well as gold brads. The upper layer is Bordering Blue---I think my first time to use this color...ever! All supplies- Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!---Lisa
