Linda, how delightful to see that frame inked over to make it stand out. Great creativity with this card, the frame offsets that sweet chickadee so beautifully. Glad you shared it on Speedy's Blog.

Linda, love your card! The coloring of the bird is
absolutely gorgeous and, I love the pink flowers -
its addition makes the whole card pop! I want to tell
you that I am quite a fan of your header! I stop &
"study" it everytime I see it. The coloring is exquisite as well as the shading! Is it taken from
a marks finest stamps?!

What a beautiful embossing folder! And you showed me something new. I didn't know Cuttlebug had "Plus" folders, such as this. Good to know, and I'll have to keep my eyes opened for this beauty.
