This is my card for the crazy 4 challenges. It is a rather springy card for this time of year however this was a unusual day. Today is my daughters 37th birthday.I can hardly believe I have a child that old, I should still be that age. :) Today was also the memorial service for my friends mom. Coming home feeling lots of emotions made me think about how precious life is and how quickly it passes. We should always take the time to spend with others as it could be the last. Sooo I decided upon the sweet birds and the sentiment reflects my thoughts. I stamped the green galore base with light grey dogwoods. I colored the birds with watercolors and cut them apart to make a tile effect. Framed them in purple. used a purple ribbon with a couple loops fastened down with a brad topped with a purple jewel.Girls need jewels!! Instead of framing the purple i made it the same size in width as the yellow to give the illusion that it was the ribbon continuing across the yellow . Take the time today to tell your loved ones how special they are to you!
