sympathy for Virginia

This image from SU's Garden Collage has really become a favorite.  I used my new (prize) powdered chalk from Chalk ah Lot - this is called Blue Bell - subtle coloring for the bird and the edges of the white circle.
Supplies:  from my stash - image, Recollection DP, pale blue ribbon, pink gems;  Other - branches from a Cheery Lynn die.  There is a sympathy verse on the inside - this is for a friend from church whose sister and sister-in-law died within four days.
