A little birdie told me...

Hi there. I wanted to pop in and share a card I made
for a few challenges. This is a OLC, you know, my Kryptonite,
but I persevered.

and the inside:

I did the smooshing technique using a piece of acetate to control the
smoosh a bit better. My "watercolors" are actually three colors of Glimmer Mists.
Because of that, the background has an added bonus of shimmer!
I had taped the card down when I was smooshing, but when I removed the
top corner, it ripped a bit. Out came my corner rounder!
The only thing left to do was stamp the bird and sentiments.

Well, that's it for now. Thanks for visiting. I appreciate
the comments left and read every one!
Have a great evening!
