Song in Your Heart

     The image on this card is from A Day for Daisies and I found it in my folder of images I had colored up but never actually made into a card or other project.  It just touched me and I decided that a nice monochromatic blue card would be perfect on this cold and rainy day.  It's obviously winter in the image because there are no leaves on the tree.  :-D


     I had already colored the image with my ProMarkers so I used a Bo Bunny die to cut it and the frame, then I mounted both of those on a lighter blue rectangle.  The background is cut from paper by DCWV using a Memory Box die.  I layered that onto a piece of navy blue CS and put that onto a card base.

     I decided that there was enough texture and visual detail with the die cuts, so all I added for embellishment were the feather and the flower.  The sentiment is my statement about being positive in all circumstances; despite rain and floods and dark skies, I find something positive in the fact that we've had rain in the midst of this horrible, five-year drought.  :-D
