Sentimental Sundays Inspired by Song Challenge

Hello all! Sorry I've been so quiet for a while now. I have been working ahead on some projects because I will be out of town next week.

My card today is for Sentimental Sundays Inspired by Song Challenge. I chose "Close to You" by the Carpenters for the line "Why do birds suddenly appear, everytime, you are near..." I just love that song. Just, almost goofy in its syrupy sweetness, lol!
This image is Wonderful Day by Mo's Digital Pencil. My sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs Gratitude Set. The flowers both inside and out are handmade using the singed edge technique. The flowers on the inside have centers made with my I-Top Brad Maker. I made the pin with glass beads and a stick pin from Fire Mountain Gems. The image is colored with ProMarkers.

Tameko said...

Such a beautiful card. Colors, design, flowers, song.....Perfect!

Rochelle said...

Ah but you're just absolutely talented, Heather!! I wish I could color like that and design like that.. This is really pretty. I love Carpenters too! Maybe because I can really relate to their songs or maybe it's because Top of the World is the only song I can sing in front of people (I know it by heart, I can't possibly get it wrong).

Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog.. :) It really warms my heart to know that someone appreciates what I'm doing.

Hope you have fun on your out-of-town trip!
