  1. A great way to showcase the delightful paper Becca, and those birds are a gorgeous accent

  2. Hmmm, thought I had commented on this card... love the way you have layered the papers Becca, and the sweet birds perched on the sides are a fun element

    1. You did, dear! Sometimes Blogger puts comments aside for moderation. Also I'm a bit behind since it's been an extra busy week for us. One of my maternal grandpa's last surviving cousins passed at age 96 on Monday. My great aunt turned 92 on Tuesday. My birthday was Wednesday. I took my mom for her hair appointment this morning and then late afternoon for the cousins' visitation service (Friday). I'll be chauffeuring my mom again Saturday morning for the funeral and burial. Dale fought at Heartbreak Ridge for the Korean War. He received 3 Purple Hearts and 1 Bronze Star. :)

  3. Hi, Becca! What a delightful card! So nice to see your work in the challenge! Thanks for hanging out at A Place to Start !
