Challenge at TMITA

Still trying to do some card challenges. There's Magic in the Air
has a great challenge by Patti J using their free digi this week with flourishes and/or pearls to make a comforting card.
My result using Photoshop to make a card is shown.
Colored the bird using PS and typed a sentiment. Found a digi flourish online but forgot to note the source. Flipped it to make the bottom border. Copied a pearl from photo online and made my "pearl bling". Added a lavendar "mat" to back of card and "mat" under bird using paint can to fill in.
This was another digital card using only Photoshop to create. Yes I can print this card but do not have printer here in Florida.  I have even printed cards and added texture and bling after printing. For example, I would print this without adding those digital pearls and then add stick on pearls to the card.  I used to make all my cards totally on the computer using Print Shop and Photoshop but made mostly photo cards or cards using printed images. That was before I got into stamping, embossing, etc. I like the more handmade look that these techniques add.
Hope you enjoy my digital interpretation of this challenge.
Thanks for dropping by. Hope you have had a  great day!

My first word was WoW!!! It is amazing what you are doing with PS. I can barely do a watermark, lol. I would love to go spend some time with you to learn how to do this. This is another beautiful card. Looking forward to seeing you again next week. Thanks for joining us again at TMITA/PCC.
