Here we are at the beginning of another work week. I know it's President's Day here in the States but there is no three day weekend for me. So while I'm getting myself ready for work I hope that some of you out there are getting the chance to get crafty and have fun today. :)

Ok, as for my card... I had forgotten that I printed off this digi image from A Day For Daisies weeks ago. But as I was shuffling things around on my desk I came across her and thought that Pearls in my Hair would be a nice change up. She originally has her right arm extended with birds perched on it but as my card design came together I ended up slicing it off so that she would be right up against the edge of the card with the blue sky paper taking over most of the space. Then I wanted the little collage of paper and goodies for balance and originally I was searching some drawers for a mini paper clip to hold the sentiment label on but instead I found that gold bird cut out and I knew that I had totally scored, LOL! I love how it pulls everything on the card together, plus the gold just looks pretty with all the pink. ;)
