Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Did this weird February warm up in the east have you digging out your short sleeve shirts a bit early? What is up w/ that? Seems like just a few minutes ago, we were freezing. I'm pretty sure winter will have a last hurrah, but spring is just around the corner. 

For my friendship card, I used the new Bird Feeder image (I love the little nuthatch!) & wonderful greeting. Since it mentions stormy weather, I wanted the background to reflect that so after stamping & coloring the bird feeder, I masked it then sponged in the bg. 
I stamped the greeting then added a few raindrops I drew & cut out. I used a birds on a wire punch across a piece of black c/s then added strips of gray & red for contrast to the black layer. A little red bird was added just because...

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Julie, this is fabulous. Your coloring of that image is wonderful and the image looks perfect with that sentiment too. Your raindrops really tie it together and I love the extra little die cuts and details. Wow!!! Hugz

What a wonderful card Julie! Love the dark stormy colors with the pops of bright red! Your birds on a wire punch is a perfect match and the raindrops add so much I'm thinking we might need to add something like it to our collection!!
