for a tweet girl

Well hello there!  Wow long time no post....  Don't you hate it when life interferes with crafting LOL!  To make a long story short, had to move my craft "room" to the dining room this past week in anticipation to having one or both of my inlaws stay with us while they recuperate from surgeries (yes, almost at the same time!).  They are both doing better at a rehab facility and with God's blessings will continue to do so.

This card is my entry to 2 challenges this week, Patti Lynn Creations (challenge:  Think Spring!) and the Fantabulous Cricut (challenge:  hip to be square - green and gold).  I made this card as a belated birthday wish for a dear young girl who turned 15 a few days ago (which reminds me, I still need to make an envelope for this card - yikes!).

Some close-ups:


Details of the card:
* 5 x 5
* green cardstock behind a floral design of a vellum paper
*"for a girl" - sentiment from A Child's Year cart
*"tweet" with bird - April Showers cart
*3d flower from CB quilling kit, embossed with Swiss Dots folder
*irock gem on bird cut's eye
*multicolored ribbon from Target
*green brads
*strip of green cardstock punched with MS puncher on the inside of card

Thanks for looking and enjoy your day!  Happy St. Patty's Day!
