A Bluebird Welcome - LIM WEEK 29

Hi everyone!  Hope you're having a lovely day!

Over at Less Is More this week, Chrissie and Mandi have set the theme as 'Things That Move'.  My take on this is a bird and feathers.
I used an embossed background that resembles a tree, then inked the edges.  My bird is 'Swallow' Sizzlits die, and I used Whitewash ColorCore card in pale blue.  I stamped 'Welcome' onto a piece of satin ribbon with a tiny sentiment from the 'Say It Loud' collection from WMS. Keeping to the bird theme, I added a small maribou feather beneath the ribbons.

Thank You! for stopping by - Have a Great Evening!
