Blue Birdy

I almost didn't get this card finished tonight. I know it looks simple, but I just kept coloring that bird and learning how to shade. The blues do really match much better in real life. I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with the bird...cut him out, punch him, put him on patterned paper. So finally I decided that simple was better. I hope you agree! Oh and a couple tips, I purchase my white paper in bulk from Staples...250 sheets for $10. The brand is Wausau Paper 110 lb cardstock. It is smooth and thick enough to be the base of a card.
