Flourished Bird on a Branch

I just feel in love with this adorable image when I found it at The Graphics Fairy.  
I played with for a while and then tucked it away in a digital images folder, I ran into it this past weekend when I was working on a challenge at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday's challenge FTCC63. Thought it would be perfect for this particular sketch!

I managed to find another challenges that this cutie pie would fit:
SCS Inspiration challenge #IC228 ~ Crate Label Museum {04-17-10}
This particular inspiration challenge took you to a crate label museum, I have never seen so many labels in all my life. Beautiful labels, very colorful and quite easy to get lost in all the various topics. If you want to take a little tour click here. Be sure to click on a topic shown and you will be blown away at all the gorgeous labels.

It seems every time I post I am dragging my behind from a hard day, hmmm, this is no exception. It's not that I am a whiner, honest, it is just getting late and I have been pushing since very, very early this morning. Go ahead and snicker, it is late for me! :) I am off to put on pj's and read for awhile. Hope you all have a wonderful week, I will see you on Friday!

This is absolutely marvelous, Donna!! Really outstanding piece of work. I LOVE the Graphics Fairy - could spend a lot of time there. And the crate label museum you mentioned, I don't think I dare take a peek there. I'd be up all night drooling. TFS this lovely creation!

beautiful. Love the distress background pieces and the way the flourish goes out of the frame.

Donna, this is absolutely stunning! The vintage feel and the corner flower detailing are just gorgeous! LOVE the flourish out of the box detailing with the bird, too! Very strikingly beautiful! Thanks so much for playing FTTC!

Donna, I have come over here and studied your card several times this morning. I am just in awe....everything you do turns to GOLD!!! Anyway, I love the shading you have done and all of the lovely DP and textures, and I could go on and on...I would love to see this in person because photos never fully do a card justice!

Donna said...

This is so pretty! I just love anything with birds! And the Graphics Fairy has so many gorgeous ones to chose from. Great job!
