Hope!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you all are doing well and have wonderful plans for the weekend! Friday's are my day to post at Artistic Outpost and today I am sharing a card using the Bluebird plate of loveliness, along with Quotes and Quotables and the Secretary Pool. For all the details and more photos, please stop OVER and have a visit.

In brief, the Bluebirds were stamped and cut out using Vintage Labels an ODBD die, shaded and embossed. The sentiment was stamped cut and placed on chipboard and then the "Fly" was also cut away. The background panel was stenciled using Tim's doily and a piece of trellis cut from burlap. "Show us your AO Art" August challenge is waiting to see your AO Art, so get those beauties inky and join in and we are flying over to visit our friends at Inspiration Journal for the "Anything Goes" challenge.

Enjoy the weekend and thank you again for taking the time to visit and comment!
