My Grace....

 Here we are this morning, rolling out a new month with the Crazy Critter Challenge for June, 2022! 

With so many beautiful birds filling my yard and at my feeder, I thought I'd share a sweet bird card this month.  This digital image is by Graciellie Designs and the package is called 'Do Not Worry'.

After printing, I colored the image with Copic markers and used the Gina Marie Designs Labels Three for the decorative edge on the image and the yellow striped matting.  I cut a solid peach rectangle liner mat slightly larger than the image for contrast.  

The A2 card base is a top fold, and once I got it put together it was still missing something.  If it had been on a side fold base I would have added a ribbon.  At this point I felt like a ribbon at the top would take away from the image and message. My solution was to use the coordinating scrap of blue and die cut the strip shown on the left.  It added the perfect pop of color to bring out the bird without taking away from the card's design and message.
