Thank You Card ~ Birds On A Wire {2nd Post}

I would like to thank Kathi at 613 Avenue Create 
for the cute bird dies I used on today's card.
Kathi sent me a package of goodies for playing along 
with their annual block party in January. Thanks so much.
I fell in love with these sweet bird dies she sent me.
I thought they would make wonderful silhouettes so I cut them in black.
To get the two shades of blue I inked up the sky part of the embossing folder,
ran it through my Cuttlebug then framed it with a blue card stock frame.
To finish off my card I added the die cut sentiment.

Okay I think I need to explain this photo. LOL.
Since it gets dark before I get home I've been trying to 
take my blog photos at school during my afternoon break.
When I was trying to take my photos of this 
card the 4th and 5th graders were out on recess.
The picture above is the only one I got without feet running through it.
I jokingly told the kids their feet were going to be on my blog tonight 
and well that is all it took to get a photo filled with feet. LOL.
Times like these are priceless and remind me why I'm a teacher.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Birds cut using the Birds On A Wire dies from Spellbinders. {at Simon Says Stamps}
*Sentiment cut using the Scripty Thanks die from Lawn Fawn{at Simon Says Stamps}
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug Skyward Set cloud folder from Provo Craft.
*Summer Sky stamp pad from Memento.

May your day always be filled with love.
