Hello There

 Hello friends.  I have another card to share today.  I made this one for a friend who is recovering from a stroke.  I think it will cheer her up as she likes my cards.

I stamped the bird image from SU Friendly Hello (retired) on a white die cut with SU Stitched so Sweetly dies.  I colored it with SU Blends, Balmy Blue, Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake and then blended Balmy Blue ink around the edges.  I mounted it on the Soft Sea Foam panel embossed with Spellbinders Leafy 3D EF - love this folder as it gives great impressions.  I added a thick black mat and then mounted to the white card base.   I stamped the sentiment and fussy cut it, angling the ends.  I used the brush end of the Balmy Blue marker to go around the edges to make it stand out better.  The image panel and sentiment are mounted with foam tape.

I am linking to the Triple B Challenge (Birds, Blooms & Butterflies) as I have a bird and blooms on this one.  Love playing in their challenge as most all of my cards have blooms on them. 😀
This is their inspiration board and I was inspired by the little bluebird and pink flowers in the bottom left picture.
I am also linking to Darnell's NBUS challenge as this is the first time I have used my new Leafy EF.
