Forever & Always

There is a fairly new challenge over at SplitcoastStampers called Mix-Ability.
I decided to to join the current challenge

I took some designer papers and tore them into pieces and then pieced them onto some card stock with ModgePodge. After it dried, I added some stamping and edged with Distress Inks. I wanted the upper right corner to appear like sunshine and the rest of the background to appear like the sky.
I am finding this mixed media stuff to be very relaxing!

The bird is a SU punch. I punched it in white cs and then used Distress Inks to make that pretty bluebird. I have a pair of bluebirds in my back yard! I have never seen them in my yard before especially since I live right in the middle of the city! They have been eating at my Suet Feeder and sitting in the cherry tree. They are so pretty against the cherry blossoms, hence my design for this card!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hope you have a great week!

What a pretty card Mackie! Your coloring and design work perfectly with this little bird punch. I have it too, need to bring it out and blow the dust off ;)
