D2D weekly challenge

This week using Lucky Bird from D2D free image from the progressive challenge. Thanks Faith for another wonderful image to create with. If you don't already participate in the weekly challenge at D2D you can buy this image from her store.
I just love the stitched look on a lot of Faiths images. So I carried that onto the card base as well as around the image. Such bright colors make me want summer to be here now. Wish I lived somewhere it was year round...hmm HI?  Oh well back to reality, SO. IL is overcast today, chilly and expecting more rain the next couple days. ugh I want 80 degree weather!
Have a great day wherever you are and no matter the weather.
The sketch I used is from OWH, sketch #59. I'll also submit this in their challenge for this week.

Happy Crafting,
Shirley G
