you are simply wonderful

*yawn* i'm TIRED today...and it's only tuesday...i think this may be a long, sleepy week! lol! 

well, hopefully the card i'm sharing today will help perk me up, after all, i do love it! :D

i created this card for the current mama elephant and me challenge! it's about paper piecing (my first love!) and thank you cards! 

no that's a fun challenge! :) 
here's my card:

i love it! 
i paper pieced each of those origami birds with three different patterned papers! i just KNEW the origami set would be perfect for this cahllenge! :) then i used the landscape trio creative cuts to create the waves of the water in vellum. I chose three different aqua patterned papers, cut them in  the loose shape of 'rays' and then also die cut those through with the landscape trio die (i wanted to keep the stitching at the top!)

i LOVE that sentiment, it's perfect for thank you cards, and expressing appreciation, i think! it's from the smitten stamp set, one of my favorite sets! i just LOVE the sayings, and that feather on it too! the panel was popped up onto the card base, and then a few sequins sprinkled here and there for a little extra something something! :)

so that's my card!
hope you all have an awesome day! :)
