Cheerful Birdie Thank You Card GBCB-004

Good morning to all!  God is on His throne, and worthy to be praised!

I wanted to make a cheerful little thank you card using colors I don't usually use--oranges and browns. Normally I gravitate towards reds, purples, cool yellows and blues and don't go to the warm side of the color wheel much. But I had in mind a sweet redhead who has been a long-time friend, and she really deserves a card from her side of the color spectrum.  :o)

I had a doily made from a Spellbinders label die and cut three of the same one that looks like this:

Then they were layered and glued to form a doily:

 After that they were dabbed with yellow ink and sprayed with pink glitter dust spray.

An ivory cardstock was used as a base, then a dark reddish layer, then a peachy polka dot piece. The doily was attached with dimensional stickies. I went through some little cut outs I had purchased in a package at a craft store and found a cute little birdie and some dogwood flowers and attached them with dimensional stickies, as well. Glitter glue was put on the breast of the bird and on the flowers both on the petals and in the center of each one.

A sprig of golden floral filler was added and then the gold and mesh bow. On top of the bow is a die cut word, "thanks."

Here is the card:

Here is a close up of the bow:

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
