Sympathy card with Birdie

I've got a sweet little Phindy's card to share today. I was in need of a sympathy card and saw the talented Dorcas use this image for this gorgeous sympathy card before, so I was inspired. The image is called Birdie available in the Phindy's Place digi store.

I went to my weekly "go to" sketch for the layout. Tracy at Eat Sleep Stamp posts a fantastic sketch each Thursday (this one is Sketchy Thursday #134). Check out her awesome sketches, they are always fun to try.

Image: Phindy's Place Birdie, senti from PTI
Ink: Printer, Palette Noir
Paper: PTI ssw, Hibiscus Burst, MME Quite Contrary
Embellishments: copics, nesties, dimensional, cuttlebug embossing folder, dimensionals, MM brads

Another WOW, jaw-dropping card Kathy. Is that okay to say about a sympathy card? I can't help it, these colors are so soothing and work so well. I'm convinced there isn't any sketch I could come up with that you can't master! You are amazing my friend. Thank you for playing along!!!
Hugs,
Tracy
