Blue Birds with Grass and Sky

Playing with a few new dies (and some older ones) to create this sweet scene.  Birds, grass, flowers, sun, clouds, and a blue sky.  I like it a lot.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink spring rain (light blue), harvest gold (yellow), new leaf (green), blueberry sky (medium blue), and stamper's select white. 
  • Dies and punches are EK Success 1-1/4" scalloped circle punch, Papertrey Ink double-ended banners die, Impression Obsession birds die, Memory Box fancy blossoms die (smallest flower), Memory Box puffy clouds dies (medium and large clouds), and My Favorite Things fresh cut grass border die.  
  • The birds' eyes are dots of Copic 0.3 cobalt multiliner.
  • The sentiment "Happy thoughts of you" is computer-printed in "Lucida Handwriting" font in blue ink with green dots (large-font periods in Courier font).
Like most of my cards, I made this one for Operation Write Home, "supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them." (178)
