Cotton Anniversary Card - ODBD

Hi All!

Whew!  Barely got this card posted in time for the deadline yesterday, so now I'm adding in the deets to my card!! 

This is for Saturday's ODBD challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs.  They are celebrating their Second Anniversary this week with a challenge every day!!  Today's challenge is to use Cotton in some way on your card! 

I used the bird image from the "You Will Find Refuge" set.  My "cotton" is the wonderful Sparkly Fluff in Sugar and Coffee Bean Brown from Our Craft Lounge.  I  l-o-v-e  playing with that stuff!!  I sprinkled the white over the bird in stragegic areas first, then let it dry and tapped the excess off.  Then sprinkled the brown in some of the other areas, repeated the process, and the result is a downy, soft feeling and looking little bird!!  With an added bonus of some sparkle!  

In addition, I added an antique cotton lacy ribbon just for good measure for the "cotton" theme!!  The little angel charm came all the way from Sweden from my sweet friend Birgit (aka Bigann over on SCS).  I'll be sending this card to her as a thank you!!

Congratulations to Our Daily Bread Designs (Click on the link to see what's going on over there!!) on their Second Anniversary!!

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
