Wow! this was a challenge.....I try to honor challenges, because the hostesses work very hard to give them to us. Today, the rule was broken. This sketch just wouldn't work for me. The circle would have been a better choice, but hindsight is always 20-20. It is what it is. Combined two digis, printed, colored and fussy cut. The rest was strips and added gold lines, and the sentiment in gold. The bow kinda balanced it out. TFL

Linda this is gorgeous! You don't sound happy with it but I just love it! Your painting and calligraphy is out of this world! How you created the gorgeous feathers on that bird is mind boggling especially with zigs. The scenery in the background has such a wonderful blend of color. Fabulous card!
