Bird of Encouragement


Hello, friends!  I'm here today with a TWEET card that I made for a friend going through a bit of a hard time.  Her daughter is entering the army, and she's sad to have her leaving for basic training.  I decided to go with patriotic colors because I felt it was fitting.  Come and take a peek!


This card was made with the fabulous Playful Stand-Ups Die Set and Sky cardstock from The Stamps of Life.  The patterned paper is from the Happy Collection Patterned Paper Pad, the dies are from the Triplits Spring Bird set.  The bird shadow die is cut out of Strawberry cardstock.  The stamped sentiments are from the chalksayings2stamp set and I think they are perfect for this occasion.  I've stamped them in Strawberry ink onto Powdered Sugar card.



I hope this will cheer my friend up and brighten her day.  I did add a personal note on the inside before mailing. :)  What do you think?  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!


I'm entering this card into the following challenges~




Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek!  I hope you take some time to join in the fun with these fabulous challenges!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, dear friends! :)
