Serene Silhouettes Sympathy Version 2

Roy asked me to make another Sympathy card for his work colleague, this one was to be from our family. I came up with this which is a total CASE from a French Demonstrator from Lyon called Cecile Ortiz. She had posted a card on our demonstrator site using this frame idea and using these colours and the background from French Foliage. I absolutely LOVE hos this turned out. 
 I took a closer pic of the birds. I inked them up with the Baja Breeze marker but once the image was stamped the birds were a little bit washed out. I used the writing end of the marker to just add a little highlight for definition. I know I probably put the colour in completely the wrong place, but it does make the birds stand out a little more.

You added blue highlights on the bird just right! The blue of the birds and frame are a perfect complement to the Crumb Cake design.
