Thank you, Theresa for choosing my beachy scene card as one of the Top Cups in last week's challenge :-)  It was such a fun challenge!
This week at SSC it is all about Color.  We are to use a minimum of three or more of these beautiful colors plus a neutral of your choice. 
BTW ~ This is one of my very favorite color combinations!
Check out what the awesome and talented Design Team has created HERE.

  2. This is just such a sweet note card, Helen, and I love the colours! I need to use Songbirds more often.

  3. Oh, this is great, Helen! Wonderful job with the challenge!

  4. I love your beautiful background, and that bird silhouette looks so sharp and crisp against it. It makes a beautiful thinking of you card.

  5. Lovely sponged panel & the bird is perfect!
