Sympathy Birds


Smooshing, spritzing and splattering are the background I made for this card.  I like the simple look even though it isn't a simple card.  I like the imagery of birds for this sympathy card.

Diecut clouds: unbranded

Diecut birds: Spellbinders

Embossed sentiment: 

Also: D.Inks, misters, Decoart spray
