With Brave Wings She Flies

Welcome back.

Whew, This is a busy week here at Art and Soul,
 I have 3 cards for you this week. 
Yesterday was card #1, this is card #2 and the third card will will post tomorrow.

A long time ago (no this isn't a fairytale - LOL) I bought a large puzzle piece and I used it as a card of sorts but I made a copy of that puzzle piece shape. Well I pulled that puzzle piece out and its been sitting on my table for a good while and last nite I finally came up with a card idea,
This puzzle piece is approximately 6.5" X 6.5"


Here is a peek of that puzzle piece. 
I traced this onto my white CS to make that fun shape.

You know that Fred She Said is the sponsor of the Craft-Dee BowZ challenge this month.... and I saw a darling bird on their site and fell in love with it. So I bought it last nite. Next I decided the bird and the puzzle piece would be a great match. So.....................................

........................Here is the card

I  used a gold leafing pen to add a gold tone outline on the puzzle shape.

Here is a close-up of that cute bird, the Nuthatch


and here is a closer view of my bow


It's a triple loop bow.
Its easy to make with the Craft-Dee BowZ tool.
