Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is anything that is normally found in the sky. I had all kinds of ideas - clouds, rain, snowflakes, the sun, rainbows, but ultimately settled on birds. We have so many varieties of birds here in East Tennessee, and I love looking out my craft room window at them. In fact, they can be quite distracting when I'm trying to get things done!
I pulled out an old favorite for this card; Free as a Bird. When it came out there was some lovely DSP that coordinated with it but, sadly, it's retired and I can't use it. (Not that I don't have three and a half packs, I just can't use it here, lol.)
I love the strips of yellow DSP over the Smoky Slate DSP, picking up the birds' colors. It's a good way to use up those little DSP pieces you can't bear to throw away!
