Have you ever seen this?

Have you ever seen this?

It just looks like musical notes on staff to me!

This was taken in December, when we did the 3,000 miles cross country road trip from New York City to San Francisco, I can't remember the exact location, or state when I took this, I pull this old photo out because it inspired this card I am showing you next!

It is for the challenge over at Embellish Magazine
A color challenge featuring BIRDS

Cardstock is from Bazzill Basics and PTI
Pink DP from Basic Grey
Green DP from PTI
Ribbon is from PTI as well
Stamp (line) from PTI

Who neat to think of them as notes...I love your resulting card!! I will always think of it when I see birds on a wire. :)

Lovely blog as well - so many great ideas, you are very talented. Sounds like Chicago was super - I'm originally from that area! Thank you again for playing along with the Embellish challenge!!

Yesterday I saw "The Birds" from Hitchcock; and now I see your card. Spooky and fun at the same time!
What an original and sweet idea to use the birds as if they were notes. Gorgeous; really gorgeous!
