When Bluebirds Fly

It's time again for my weekly post for my guest design team spot at The Digi Bells DT, showcasing Elisabeth Bell in my creation. Today I chose to use Li'l Janelle's Harvest, waaaay fun to color! I stalked the UPS man today, awaiting the arrival of my new Martha Stewart punch around the page punches and am thrilled with the outcome. The DPs are from My Mind's Eye, lost & found collection. I also used my Spellbinder Nestabilities, lacey circle and classic circle dies in my Cuttlebug. I have to thank Bev Rochester for her awesome video tutorials - I attempted her technique at cloud making - had to use my chalks instead of inks, but they worked and I'm pleased with the outcome and now officially addicted to cloud making :) Used some pearls and bead cups to fashion my stickpin and to embellish the rest of the easel card, along with my fiskars flower punch, a dash of satin edged organza ribbon and sang Somewhere Over The Rainbow while coloring with my coipcs.
I followed the sketch (again) over at Seems A Little Sketchy 
 Thanks so much for stopping by today!
