FlourishesDay3

I chose Silke to case..HERE is her card. I love her style.  Although 
this looks nothing like her original card I cased the layout.  This is the 
soon to be released set Friendly Reminds.. I used this awesome  
Gingham Checked Ribbon that Flourishes carries. 


I was inspired by the beautiful warm weather and the frenzy of birds we
have here.  I grabbed some twigs and tied them with this String Burlap   
also from Flourishes. 

Want to be even further inspired.. Check these out....

  10. gorgeous card. Love how you colored the nesties background. When I took a closer look I realized it was corrugated. It just pops and makes such a wonderful background for the birdhouse.
