Carol's birthday

This is DP (Daisy D, I think) that I have been hoarding - waiting for that special occasion!  My sister is younger than I and would not recall the family farm home with no indoor plumbing - in use when I was young.  She will remember the dozens (probably hundreds) of chickens she raised, butchered and froze - though that was many years ago as well.
The image is from Beccy's Place.  She used it for a sample - it has lovely highlights that I was not able to duplicate - I tried chalk.  The bird and branches are Cheery Lynn dies from Joan's Gardens.
Any, with a Beccy's image:  : 
Fall colors, trees, bird, leaves, her product:

What a pretty card Dorothy. I love the country house and you did such a nice job coloring it.
Great job.

Definitely a beautiful reminder that Autumn has arrived. Love the contrast of the background against that gorgeous focal image. Thanks for joining us at Frilly and Funkie. Hugs, Jenny x

You did a fantastic job with the image Dorothy, it looks wonderful on your card. I love the background papers you used, all those gorgeous, warm autumn colours are my favourites. I hope you sister enjoys it!
