Timeless Tuesday at Flourishes #158

Hello! I made this card for Timeless Tuesday Challenge over at Flourishes. Tammy is hostessing this week's challenge and the theme is Country Comfort! Create anything inspired by country living…. a farm-theme, gardening, country patterns (calico, gingham, plaid), quilts, wildflowers… whatever you interpret as country comfort! I had so many ideas and started to make a quilt card. But my order came today and I just had to play with some of it. One of the set I received is "Spring has Sprung" I grew up in the country and one the things I loved was listening and hearing nothing but the sound of birds chirping. So when I think of country I think of how quiet it was and how lovely it was just to listen. The branches and the bird is from"Home Tweet Home", the sentiment is from "Pears" and the tiny flowers are "Tiny Flowers and Tags" all are from Flourishes.


The images were colored with Copic's and sky back ground was sponged using Memento.
Hope your day is going well and thanks for stopping by.

Oh, and the little fox? We used to have one that came around...he only had 3 legs and we fed him dog food and called him Tripod, lol! He eventually quit coming...hoping a trap did not finally get him ....
