Gingham Thank You

(I just added a Followers button...don't ask me why it took me so long, but it is there now and you can follow me on  my crazy, creative journey.  Thanks to everyone that has already signed up and has been following me!)

Delightful Inspiration's Progressive Challenge

Free Image : Applique Tree
(free if you played along last week or you can find it here)

Here is my card using the image, Applique Tree. 

I love this new image and the possibilities are endless.  I could resist, but to paper piece this image and make it look like a real appliqued picture.  I used lots of different patterned papers to make it all come together.  I added some little yellow punched flowers to the tree to make it look like spring blooms on a tree.  The bird is popped up with some tiny foam dots.  I used my rectangle nestabilities to make the brown frame.  Not sure what I was going to do with this card, so I decided on a "Thank You" sentiment.

You might want to go over to the Designed2Delight's store and check out all the new "Spring" images that Faith has added.  She's been quite busy lately!!  They are so cute and you will be seeing more of them here real soon.  I can't seem to color fast enough.
