Beautiful Cloudy Day

It is Shirley posting today.  I have a card to show you that I made for the Classy Cards Cloudy Day challenge.   We have had enough of dark cloudy days where I live so I wanted to make a card with a beautiful cloudy day.

I started my card using a white piece of card stock.  I used a cloud template and blue ink to sponge clouds all over the background. I took some green designer paper from my stash and cut layers of grass using the Impression Obsession Small Grass Border. I layered the grass pieces over the bottom of the card.

I cut the fence using the PoppyStamps Country Fence die. I had extra red birds in my stash that I had made with the 
Impression Obsession Birch Trees die. The bow was made using the Sue Wilson Finishing Touches Filigree 3D Itty Bitty Bow. I attached the fence the bow and the birds to my card using Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.

I used more of the green paper to cut two of the Memory Box Madera Corner die.  I used the Cheery Lynn Cutie Fringe IV die to cut the two larger flowers in each corner. The small flowers were made with a punch from my collection and White Pearls were added to the centers.

My birdhouses were cut using the Impression Obsession Birdhouse set dies. I used Glitz Vintage Blue paper for the birdhouses and then cut some frames from brown card stock.

Thank you for taking a look at my card today and I will be back soon with another card.

Well, spring is here, as noted in this happy spring-like scene on your card - you have recreated the perfect sky and even the birds look like they are celebrating! The sweet vines of flowers and the bow on the fence look terrific! Great card!!
