Songbird for The Flower Challenge

Hello again, friends! 

 It's a brand new challenge at The Flower Challenge #89 and we want you to make a SQUARE card. My card uses two of my favorite things, birds, and watercolored flowers! 

The Songbird stamp set from Penny Black was stamped on watercolor card stock with black ink and I used Distress re-inkers as watercolors to color the images in this sweet scene. 

This is my favorite kind of card to make. Simple, but with soft hues. The sentiment is also PB, from the  Happy builder set. These sets include a large greeting and small lines of sentiment to complete them.  Happy thoughts is one of my favorites.

It makes me happy that you've paid me a visit today. Your comments make me smile! Hope you your day is wonderful!

Be yourself

          Have delight in your craft 

               Make something beautiful!  

I'm joining the following challenges:

We're thinking the same thoughts, Cindy -- birds and flowers, simplicity and coloring. I adore your watercoloring and you know I'm a Penny Black fan in addition to being a Cindy B fan! This is gorgeous beyond measure. ps: I ordered a whole bunch of the new PB release. I'll be a coloring fool.
