Life is Heavenly . . .

Happy TUESDAY Everyone!
Today I had a little fun getting INKY 
and created a card that anyone you consider a friend would appreciate receiving!

I love how quickly this card came together.
The first thing I did was create my 'shades of blue' background by using large sponge daubers and 4 different shades of Tim Holtz distress ink.  Then came the MAGIC by overlaying a white die cut panel using the Poppystamps 'Luxe Background' die.

I used a panel of blue cardstock (65# weight) 1/8" smaller than my card base as my mat.  Adhered my colorful background panel then taking another strip of blue card stock, I tore the upper edge and adhered across the bottom.

My sentiment panel is an image from the Crafty Secrets 'Little Blessings' Creative Scraps and the only embellishments I felt were necessary are the birds which have been popped up with SU dimensional for added dimension.

Dies used are:
and one of the sitting birds from

Your card is lovely. I love the center piece and those sweet little birds! I'm a little confused about the first sentence though. Did something go a little crazy, since it is only Tuesday?
