PDCC80, CAS118, CPS217 - Sad to see you go. . .

We have some dear friends that are moving this summer and I was thinking about them while making this card.  How come the people that irritate you hang around forever but the ones you love move?  Did I really just say that?  Anyhoo - this card is for three challenges - the Play Date Cafe Challenge, the sketch from Card Positioning Systems and the Splitcoast Stampers CAS Challenge to use banners.  Do you see the mournful bird watching her friend fly away? 
At least she has a beautiful cage to be in courtesy of the Life Is a Song stamp set from A Muse|Studio - in fact, there are four birdcages in that set.  The "moving" bird was cut with the Swallows die and to add a little texture I embossed the stamped panel with the Woodgrain/Harlequin Impression Plate.
Here's a couple more pics I took of the Peonies in my backyard with the FX camera app on my phone -
 Same flowers in both shots - pink and poofy!!

Great card! I love all the dimension and the bird soaring off to somewhere new! Pretty peonies too!

The link on CPS was to the wrong card. So glad I found the right one though because this is gorgeous too!! Thanks for joining us at CPS.
