Forever Fern for Case This Sketch #384 and Color Dare #406

Happy Wednesday.  It's the end of the middle of the week and the weekend is on its way!  I'm sharing another card I made during my time in my crafting cave this week.  I used the sketch across at CaseThisSketch as inspiration

Such a pretty sketch and I love the fact that it was the sketch from back in the day - sketch #45!  I decided to ink up my Forever Fern using three inspiration colors from the Color Dare challenge. I went with Smoothie, Sapphire and Glacier - well as close as I could get :-)

Here's my card and I really love these colors together!

Before I sign off, how about a look at what has been visiting the feeder?  I couldn't resist sharing this photo of the male Baltimore Oriole.  Apart from the fact he is so incredibly handsome, I love the way he appears to be looking at the bird on the feeder stand!

I'll be back tomorrow.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift today.

I loved your card and the Baltimore Oriole. This morning, while watering the garden, there were some birds taking a bath in the spots of water. I think I should do more than just looking at your pictures . . . I should act!! Thanks for your exemple!


Marina, when you take the photos - we want you to share them!
It's a wonderful day when you can share a moment with nature :-)
