Be Strong

Good Morning! Happy Monday!
 
 
I'm playing this week at Simon Says. The challenge is make your own background. And also, in Virginia Lu's challenge : Layers  My background is water colored using some green and blue watercolor. Very soft. The bird stamp is Dina Wakley's new bird stamp set called Scribbly Birds on branches. The flowers are from Maggie Holmes and the sentiment is from Simon Says called "Be"
 
Have a wonderful week!! Hugs, Char
