Stack of Birds

I'm a bit late (again) but I did play along with the Diva Coffee Break Designs color challenge this week.  I just haven't had time to post it until now (and I really should be outside finishing up my painting but I'm exhausted right now). 

The color combo this week is Cherry Cobler, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist and Early Espresso.  I believe I could enjoy Cherry Cobler with just about any combination.  I played around for awhile to come up with this card.  I thought it might be cute to stack the birds as if they are working together to reach a friend in the cage.  I actually wanted a "miss you" sentiment but couldn't find one even though I know I have one... I just didn't feel like looking very long I guess. 

Anyway, in case you are wondering, you are not imagining it, there is a row of punched circles in Early Espresso to the left of the main panel.  I layered them all then decided it was a little busy and the only way to tone it down was to make the circles tone on tone with the background.  It worked so well I had trouble getting them to show in the photo!

Hope you like it.  Go play along if you haven't already.  The Divas would love to have you!

Have a great day.  Hopefully I'll be back one more time before I leave for a week.  Then I'll be back for school and a routine again- ahhhh.
