Blackbird Singing in the Dead of Night...

All that we send into the lives of others comes back into our own. -Edwin Markham

Today I am posting a rework of one of the Spring Card Kits I did with my LOStie Sisters a few weeks ago...this kit was sent by Barb and is soooo pretty, I originally had very little black on it besides the image and had no sentiment on the outside and the inside was blank...Fast Forward to the night before our family April Birthday Celebration and I had no card for my SIL. I had made this Sweet Pea card for my Mom to give to her, but nothing from me!!!!

My SIL loves All things Orange, so I grabbed my Card Kit card and CAREFULLY lifted the layers, added a black layer to the image and a Black Pearl to the swirl, then a HB sentiment and worked a little on the inside, Voila! Birthday card for SIL!

I added some Basic Grey swirls and a sentiment for a quick inside...

Stamps: Birds Galore (
Inkadinkado,) Flower Swash (Basic Grey)
Paper: Very Vanilla (SU,) Bazzill, Martha Stewart PP
Ink: Peach Chalk (Colorbox,) Pallette Noir
Stardust Stickles, Swirl Die, Black Pearl, Lace, Paper Piercing Tool, Pop-up Glue Dots

Thanks for stopping by! (If you would like to see what the other ladies did with this kit click HERE)
