Magical Monday - Flight of the Fuschia

E Komo Mai and Aloha to another Magical Monday challenge at There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes. Today's challenge is set by my hometown mate, Patti J Gilliam!! She's asked us to use Nina's Flight of the Fuschia image to make a "comforting card" with pearls and/or flourishes. Well, why I love the challenge, I had a hard time getting this card to the point that I liked it...and I'm still not quite there! Tried to make my bird look like a bluebird (that's in honor of Patti as it's the state bird of Missouri!). Tried to get the flourishes through the papers, but can't see much of them...oh well! Those are black pearls on the corners (you only see three as I missed up the corner that covered...). Here's the inside...
I'll also submit this to ABC Challenge - O is for Oval. Thanks for coming by again and I hope you're able to join in the challenge this week! I love coming by and seeing what you come up with!

Aloha,
