A Touch of Sun

I'm still finding lots of leftovers for the Shopping Our Stash "Front and Centre" Challenge.  These birds have been sitting around since I made this card in August.  They are Memory Box Meadow Birds, embossed and enamelled to give them a glossy molten glass effect.   This first card uses a sentiment from WMS My Island mounted on a Spellbinders Nested Pennant.

This second card has a sentiment from WMS Fine Feathers mounted on a Spellbinders Nested Pennant.  I thought it could be used for a get well card and will be entering it in Make My Monday Challenge 34.

The last card features a sentiment from the Verve Rise Above set mounted on a speech bubble from Joy Crafts.

The background was created using Memory Box Small Circle Burst and the birds are perched on a branch from Spellbinders Cherry Blossoms.

I'll also be entering my cards in the following challenges

Thanks for stopping by, especially if you take the time to leave some feedback,
