It's a Good Day to be Happy

Hi there! I have a fun card to share today and I was first inspired by the sketch this week at cas(e) this sketch then a few bird challenges caught my eye.

To make this card I have used lots of different techniques - masking, distress inks, die cuts & copics and it's the first time that I have tried using acetate notecards....which are fun to use and much stronger than I thought they would be. I like how this turned out but it was very hard to photograph - in the end it was easiest to lay it flat:)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today xx
