Kind Cute by Patricia

Chick Letter, AAA CAS Card Challenge #163

Happy Monday from my living room to yours! Today I have a sweet little birdie for you which also doubles as my entry for Challenge #163 over at AAA Cards CAS Challenge # 163. This little digi comes from Kinda Cute by Patricia. If you have never heard of her or seen her stuff, do yourself a favor and buzz on over and check her out. We are still doing our best to flatten the curve here at our house. We are about 5 weeks in. Total learning curve for us. WE are calling it the test for when my husband retires next year. I can see that we will both have to alter our routines a bit. But I am pretty sure we will both survive. I hope all of you are getting along with whomever you may be locking down with.

I love this sweet bird! It comes in another version that is architectural. I purchased that one also, as they are just too cute for words.

The envelope is pretty plain. I thought if I colored it, it may overpower the bird. So I opted just to add a tiny bit of shadow and colored the heart. I added a tiny spot of gel pen then covered the whole heart in Morning Dew Nuvo Drops.

I added this sentiment from Waffle Flower. I chose this one, because sadly I will be using this as a sympathy card. But the cool part is, by changing the sentiment you could virtually use this as a card for anything. How usefull!

This is my favorite kind of card, not sympathy, just a small sweet image and sentiment and lots of white space. I really love this card, Jill!
