Encouragement card for a dear friend who loves birds. As ODBD celebrates their 4th anniversary, the Shining the Light Challenge is to use your favorite ODBD set. Here I chose You Will Find Refuge. This is my favorite ODBD image, and I love that so many scriptures are suitable with this sweet chickadee. The inside sentiment is also from this set and reads "I will sing and make music with all my soul" Psalm 108:1
I added my favorite mini blooms to go with my fav lil bird, and also some lace and gems from a precious friend. The chickadee was colored using a combo of chalk, watercolor and Copics. I love that this set also has a die cut- it makes it too easy.
Thanks so much for looking!

Can feel the "hugs" your gorgeous card is full of, Pat! That SB frame is the perfect place for your chickadee to perch among all those lovely blooms and the huge amount of leaves you've punched - like a natural setting. Your card has all the loving touches you add from your heart - surely, a comfort and strong encouraging message that 'this, too, shall pass'. hugs!
