Bluebird and Bluebells

It's another Flourishes Friday!  Today we're showing you some more beauties from the March release at Flourishes.  Today is your last day to be able to purchase the New Release Bundle at a discount!


I so love the bluebird in the Spring is Sprung set.  She's just flying in perching on the stem of the bluebell and I love the feeling of her lighting and the feeling of motion :)  She's colored up with Copic markers to match a picture I found of a bluebird and then I added some extra bluebells popped up from the other bluebell stamp in the set.  I love how it looks!  It was a little bit of fussy cutting, but worth the effort I think.  This layout is this weeks Mojo Monday sketch 183 :)  


The White Metallic Velvet ribbon is from Flourishes, and so are the rhinestones.   It's a delightful touch of spring on this day :)

This is fabulous with all that blue. I really like all the bluebells. This bird looks like our North Carolina bluebirds. Great job Christine.
