"Snow Bird"



I wanted to make a card that I could tuck some cash in for my daughter. This is what I came up with. I colored the image with Copics, I added Glamour dust to the hat, pom poms and boot tops. I add Spica pen to the wings and the strings. I added liquid pearls to the snow flakes. I used a new Memory Box die for the ivy. I also used a snowflake embossing flolder on the inside pocket. The tag is a Cherrylynn die and the sentiment is from CTMH. A sheer ribbon finishes this card off.
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song:
Beneath it's snowy mantle cold and clean,
The unborn grass lies waiting for its coat to turn to green.
The snowbird sings the song he always sings,
And speaks to me of flowers that will bloom again in spring.
When I was young my heart was young then, too.
And anything that it would tell me, that's the thing that I would do.
But now I feel such emptiness within,
For the thing that I want most in life's the thing that I can't win.

Patty, this is so sweet & what a wonderful way to tuck a little "love from Mom" into the pocket. Love the easel card & your amazing color choice. Great look with the ivy die ... My daughter is coming home from Alabama for Christmas so I will probably spoil her a little ...
Big hugs to you, Janie
