Always On My Mind

I had to take some time out to sort and stow some new goodies that just arrived.  I then stamped some up and I have been coloring.  The card I made today is for a couple of challenges.  One of the challenges features "birds" and the other features the card sketch though mine is turned sideways.  I absolutely love these little fluffy birds and their matching dies.  They cut out the birdies perfectly with no excess edge.  I purposefully didn't color their feet.  We will call that design adaptation. It just worked better that way.  Their little eyes are also missing because they are white embossed(filled in).  I thought it would might look tacky to put something there to indicate eyes...but we will see.  I might change my mind.  I have teensy black Swarovski crystals.  My card colors came out so bright today.  I don't know why because this card is somewhat more subtle in real life...especially the green.
