Dare to be Different

Good day my favorite people! Today's card was created with Doodle Pantry's Branch Birds 2 and of course colored with my favorite copics! I used spellbinders label's 13 and used various punches for clouds, leaves, branches, and butterflies.  I also used some of my favorite embellishments... pearls!  I love these pearls.  I stopped buying them in colors so I could just color them with my copics to match everything I do!

Here's a bit of a close up of the bottom half. 

If you guys don't know, I just started this blog 3 weeks ago and man... I am having so much fun.  I am loving doing this.  Sharing cards and ideas with people is so much fun! It got me back on track to making cards too.  I have to give a special thanks to Marilyn who gently nudged me to do this.  

This card was entered in the following challenges: 
Craft your passion: flips and folds
Little Miss Muffet: Loads of Layers
Paper Makeup Stamps: Things with Wings

Thanks for looking!
