Make it Monday -- Framing

Good evening! Today's Make it Monday challenge on Papertrey is by Laurie Schmidlin and the challenge is framing sentiments. I played with a few frames before I remembered this retired (I think) Spellbinders fancy frame, which I thought was a nice accompaniment for the brushed bird. I chose bright colors to be cheery for a friend facing cancer treatments (or perhaps another friend...haven't quite decided on the recipient) and tried to keep it simple. My last card was way too clunky and heavy.

I am enjoying the Brushed Birds set, but I probably should break out of using the exact same bird each time. It is just so much fun though playing with color schemes!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Super sweet, Peggysue! I like how you combined the bird with the wonderful scripture! And that frame is beautiful!
