Breeze in Spring

Yippee it's Friday!  I'm especially looking forward to today because hubby and I are celebrating my birthday!  Tomorrow is the actual date, and we'll be spending the day with family and friends, so today is just for my honey and me.

Surprise!  No bright colors on today's card!  This image, Breeze in Spring, from A Day for Daisies, needed soft neutral colors with just a bit of color (the aqua).  The design layout is from Just Us Girls Challenge #183.  The little wooden bird was a MAJOR score at Michaels!  I was in the store to pick up cutting blades and happened upon a 60% off one day sale on selected items.  I purchased 5 different packages of Recollections wood embellishments.  When I purchased them, I wasn't entirely sure I'd like wood elements on cards, but this bird worked so well.

Best wishes for a fabulous weekend!  Thank you for visiting!
