Night Song

I have a special affection for birds and when looking to bring cheer or comfort, my mind settles on bird images often.

I made this card using this week's MOJO Monday sketch...don't ask what happened to my Tuesday-Thursday...and today's SCS challenge to use a bird in your card.

This is a sympathy card for my Aunt who lost her daughter (my cousin) who was only a few years older than I. I am hoping it brings her some measure of comfort knowing that others care and our lifting her up to the Father.
I had taken the photo and was about to put this in the mail, when I looked and decided my bird needed a bit of color. Just by brushing over it with a couple of colors, he is brought to life. I also decided to move the picture background, the boquet is from my good friend, Cindy, in the background!! Isn't it a breath of fresh air??

I plan on posting some of my fun birthday cards here in a few days...our mail is so slow, so some of them are trickling in!! I had a wonderful birthday, thanks to all my stamping friends for making it that way!~ I so appreciate you!!
