Gentle Pastels.

Image may contain: text and food

Greetings my dear readers and friends. This has been a very windy week, and one can only take so much of this. The birds are nowhere to be seen, and I am doing the same. Staying put and not enjoying the wind blowing through. One of the panels on my fence were blown away and is now on the ground. I sure hope the wind dies down very soon.

Well, I let my Best Birds out of the case and made this beautiful and gentle card. The soft pastels colors of the inspiration were so beautiful and it made me think of the early Spring colors that are normally so gentle but bring so much happiness to our hearts. I have a friend going through some difficult time, so I think this card will bring her a bit of tenderness. I did not cut out every branch, instead I stamped them directly onto the Very Vanilla base and cut one out, coloring them all and the bird with with the beautiful new Watercolor Pencils a bit darker than the other. The bird was also cut out using the matching Birds & Blooms thinlits and both were popped up using Dimensional. This a quick, simple, but very pretty card that can be put together in no time.

Thank you for coming over. I hope you enjoyed the project and found inspirations to create something beautiful. Be well
