And we're still reaping the benefits of your enjoyment, Bonnie! So lovely - and such a fun shaped card!
I'm so worried about our 9 sitting out in all this ice =[

Beautiful bluebird card!! We actually had a few bluebirds here a few weeks ago, I went and bought them some mealy worms but I think they left before they ever found them!
Thank you for joining our challenge at Double D!

That Elegant Rectangle die makes a great layered card shape Bonnie, and the bird and flower image is so beautifully coloured...a really elegant card. x

Such a pretty, sweet Springtime bird. TFS Bonnie. We are getting rare snow..up to 3" so far and still snowing..lol. That is a LOT for the Oregon Coast. Denny has a nice warm fire going and we are prepared in case we lose power. Your pretty bird is such a wonderful reminder that Springtime will be here soon:-) Love and Hugs.....Nancy

You did a beautiful job painting this, Bonnie! Love the font of your sentiment too. I always admire the soft wash you use in your background without getting those nasty watermarks. So well done!

Lisa Elton said...

And might I say, YAY, we're still enjoying what you create with them! This is so pretty and I like the layered shaped card!

Beautiful watercoloring of the blue bird and rose, Bonnie! The soft wash (pulling the paint?) in the background adds an organic flair to the card. Love the elegant shape of the frame and card!
